Competition Submission Information for Teams

Your Future City name must be the same on all deliverables and be the same as your team name that was entered into the online submission center*. If you change your city name after putting your team name into the online submission center, you must also change your team name online. All scoring is done based on the team name in the system, so having different names may result in scoring complications. The team name SHOULD NOT be related to your school or organization name.

The submission deadlines for the 2021 competition are:

The above deliverables must be uploaded to the online submission center at Futurecity.org. The City Essay should be in Word format. The City Model Slideshow, Competition Expense Form, and Project Plan should be in PDF format. The City Video Presentation will need to be hosted on a site of your choosing, with a link uploaded to the online submission center. Be sure to check the Program Handbook for details.

The Media Waiver must be submitted for each team member through the online submission center and electronically signed by parents or guardians no later than Friday, January 29, 2021 so that we have it before the competition begins. Instructions are here .


If you have any questions or problems with the upload to the online submission center, contact Mary Moyer, School Coordinator, or Susan Best, Judging Coordinator.

*Note: The online submission center is a competition management system, and is frequently referred to as "CMS" by the competition officials.
