Three Silver Stage Middle School teams competed in the 18th annual Future City Regional Competition

Jan. 22-23 at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The eighth-grade students addressed the problem of “Providing an affordable green living space for people who have lost their home due to a disaster or financial emergency.”

The teams began with a computer program where they designed and ran their own city then researched and wrote a city narrative as well as a 1,000 word essay. Final stages of the competition were to build a physical model and finally present their city to a panel of judges.

The teams, aided by teacher Patricia Edmonson and engineer mentor Tom Young, were:

• La Luz de Sol: Jesus Felix, Jasmyne Taylor, Micheal Alexander and Brandon Perez received an award for “Most Futuristic City.”

• Arlington: Brennen Cartwright, Chris White and Cody Whetzel received awards for “Best Indoor Environment” and “Best City Narrative.”

• Tree Hill: Senia Howes, Kathryn Kimball and Kaitlyn Smith received an award for “Most Futuristic Personal Transportation System.”
