  • Mentors Needed for Future City Philadelphia 2016

    Hello from Future City Philadelphia!

    The competition is off to a great year!  There are 52 schools registered.  Most of them have a mentor (or two); however, there are still a few schools that need a mentor and we are trying desperately for fine one for them.  The schools that still need a mentor are:

    Conwell Middle Magnet School                       Philadelphia, PA

    Holy Family Regional Catholic School            Levittown, PA

    Penn Wood Middle School                             Darby, PA       

    Richboro Middle School                                  Richboro, PA

    St Francis de Sales School                            Philadelphia, PA

    Stewart Middle School                                    Norristown, PA

    If you are interested in working with any of these schools, please let me know as soon as possible.

    The first submission for the competition, the Virtual City, is due December 14th.  The second submission, the City Description, is due December 21st.   We are looking for volunteers to judge these submissions.  The information is emailed to you so you can review and judge on your own timing.  Judging is to be completed  by mid January.  For more information, please click on the following link,                                                                                                                              

    We are also in need of preliminary judges, special awards evaluators and general volunteers for the day of the competition, which is Saturday, January 23th at Archbishop Carroll High School in Wayne, PA.  Preliminary judges and special awards evaluators are needed for the morning session of the competition.  General volunteers are needed throughout the day  to help organize the schools, get the schools to the judging rooms, collect scorecards, etc.
