bpms students pose with their second place trophy at the future city competitionThe Broadalbin-Perth Middle School Future City team went up against middle schools from around the Capital Region this weekend and took home a slew of awards, including second place overall.

Students created a Star Wars-themed presentation of a city with a tainted water supply, and how to fix it. The team wrote an essay, built a 3D model of their city, and presented before a panel of judges. In addition to winning second place overall, the BPMS team won for Best Use of Construction Materials, Best Complete Streets Design, and Best City to Live In. The model will now be taken on the road as students will be presenting their model at Engineer Week in February and presenting at State Education Department in the Spring.

You can watch their presentation, and video from the day, below.

This is the 19th year for the Capital Region Future City competition. It was held at the Armory at The Sage Colleges of Albany.
