Future City 2020-21 Call For Volunteers
The future city competition is a nationwide competition where students in 6th , 7th and 8th grade imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future. Each year students are given a city problem to which a solution needs to be incorporated into their future city. This year, teams will be designing specific components into their cities to help the community thrive while LIVING ON THE MOON!
Future City New England region has the mission to bring each and every student participating (and their school faculty, parents, mentors, and all involved) a positive learning experience full of fun, teamwork and creativity. We are thrilled you want to be involved! Although this is a competition, we hold the spirit of knowledge to be our number one priority. We aim to see students of all backgrounds throughout New England gaining appreciation for their infrastructure and those who make it possible. We also want the students to understand the design process and work in teams in a similar way to engineering professionals. We want the students to broaden their perspectives on the way the world works and the ways they may want to contribute to it in the future.

Mentoring. Mentors work with teams to provide a different perspective and input on how it is like to be working in STEM fields. It is expected that mentors interact with students on multiple occasions and visit the school or skype with students.
Non-interactive Judging. These Judges will be judging the city essay, city model, recording deductions, reviewing budgets/receipts, reviewing project plans, but will not be on video conference calls with students.
Interactive judging. These Judges will be either judging the presentations / Q&A sessions, or they will be judging special awards. The special awards are named for sponsors, so if you want your company to host one, visit
. There is a wide range of time commitment for this type of judging. Expect at minimum 2 scattered hours over a month and maximum 10 hours over a month, plus 3 hours on the day of the finals.
Organizing. There is a wide range of volunteer roles outside of judging and mentoring, also. With this type of volunteering, we will talk individually and see where you can help.
