Indiana middle school students envision a waste-free future

Some of Indiana’s brightest young minds shared their visions of the future Saturday as part of this year's Future City Competition hosted by Purdue University Fort Wayne. Fourteen teams of middle school students from across the state created large tabletop models to present at this regional competition. Future City, a program of DiscoverE, asks students to design and build cities of the future to solve a sustainability issue.

This year's theme was “A Waste-Free Future." Students presented and defended their designs remotely to a panel of judges.

The team from Blackhawk Middle School took home the first-place prize. These students will compete virtually in the Future City Competition National Finals, held in Washington, D.C., February 21–23.

Norwell Middle School finished in second place and Kekionga Middle School finished in third.
