2018 Future Cities Competition
On January 20, 2018, we sent two YMG members to represent the ASCE NC Section and the Eastern Branch at the 16th Annual Future City North Carolina Competition.
This year, students from over 35 participating middle schools were challenged to design an "age-friendly" city that would cater specifically to the needs of retirees 100 years from now.
After a full day of judging, Evan Reilly and Keith Rines presented the specialty award for "Most Innovative Design of Infrastructure Systems" to Langtree Charter Academy's "Swaziland" project. The judges were impressed by the team's physical model, which incorporated wastewater treatment, rainwater harvesting, and renewable wind and solar energy generation. ASCE NC/EB are proud to have sponsored this event for 15 years, and look forward to future participation.
Thank you to the Future City NC Steering Committee and NC State Engineering for hosting such a successful and educational event!
