DiscoverE Announces Judging Opportunities for the 32nd Annual Global Future City Competition: Electrify Your Future

DiscoverE Announces Judging Opportunities for the 32nd Annual Global Future City Competition: Electrify Your Future

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DiscoverE (Discover Engineering), a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring the next generation of engineers, is calling on engineering and technical professionals along with anyone who wants to make a difference, to volunteer as judges for the 32nd Annual Future City Competition. Judging opportunities are available in January (select a region near you), or February at the global finals competition in Washington, DC, or virtually in January or February.

This year's Future City® Competition challenges middle school students to imagine and design future cities that are fully electric and powered by clean, green, and renewable energy sources. Students will present their visions of the future through a city essay, a scale model, a project plan, and a presentation.

Each year, more than 60,000 students, representing 1,800 schools and 38 regions in the US, take part in the Future City® Competition. Teams present their ideas at Regional Competitions in January. US regional winners then face off at the Future City Finals, where they are joined by a growing roster of global teams, including those from Canada and China. Taking place in Washington, DC February 17-20, 2024, during Engineers Week, the exciting competition culminates with one team taking home the grand prize including $7,500 for their school's STEM program (provided by Finals sponsor Bentley Systems) and a STEM experience (last year's winning team went to NASA's space camp).

"We are excited to offer this opportunity for individuals who want to make a difference to participate in this inspiring competition and help us identify the future leaders of STEM," says Kathy Renzetti, Executive Director & CEO of DiscoverE. "By volunteering as a judge, you will have the chance to mentor and encourage the next generation of innovators and problem solvers."
