Middle school students capture awards at Future City competition
Young students’ visions of tomorrow’s urban centers took center stage at Sunday’s North Carolina Future City competition.
Hanes Magnet School in Winston-Salem took the top prize at the annual event in Raleigh, winning $1,000 and advancing to next month’s national competition in Washington, D.C. The state competition brought together 24 teams of 6th-, 7th- and 8th-graders who were challenged to design a city using SimCity software, research and write an essay, create a project plan and use recycled materials to build a physical model.
WithersRavenel sponsored the competition’s “Best Land Planning Award.” The winner of that honor was “Sky High City” from Carolina Friends School in Durham.
