A big thank you to all the volunteers from FM Solutions, and the CSI Phoenix Chapter who participated in judging the Future Cities Arizona competition for middle schools. In this event, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are given a challenge to create a city of the future. This year's challenge was providing their city with fresh water. Our volunteers pre-viewed the project models during the week at the Burton Barr Library, then sacrificed their Saturday morning to join me in judging their presentations at 7:30 AM in Queen Creek.
The projects were amazing, and the students were so excited to tell us about their cities (a few examples in the pics attached). It was a close competition, but we chose 3 finalists for the "Excellence in the Use of Materials" award. The CSI Phoenix Chapter will award $500 to the winning Team, and invite them to present their project at the next monthly Chapter meeting.
Again, my appreciation to all the volunteers: Byron Bargas-CSI, Jay Harris-CSI, Jarvis Gonzalez-FMS, Priscilla Petersen-FMS and Cameron Petersen-FMS and Preview volunteers: Joe Tenison-FMS, Larry Meyers-FMS! We can't wait to do it again next year! #FCAZ #FMSolutions #CSI-PHOENIX
