2015 Future Cities Award Winner

This year’s local Future Cities competition came to a close with students from throughout the state presenting their concepts to judges and their peers.  There were many imaginative concepts and several teams were deserving of our award this year, but unfortunately, only one could win.  The winner of ITS Arizona’s award this year for “Best Future Transportation System” was awarded to Desert Breeze Elementary in Avondale.  The name of their future City is Island of Elements.
