FIVE CSS STUDENTS WON THE 2018 NEW YORK CITY REGIONAL FUTURE CITY COMPETITION with their amazing city COSMOPOLIS and their superlative presentations and dazzling performance. They were, to put it succinctly: ELECTRIC.

They will be off to Washington, DC, for the NATIONAL FINALS from February 18 to 22, 2018.

But the competition only covers the cost for 3 students. ALL FIVE OF THEM DESERVE TO ATTEND!

WE NEED $1500
 to pay for their train tickets, hotel for four nights, and per diem for five days.

Please contribute generously to help make their dream come true. You can give as much or as little as you want - even $20 will make a difference and encourage others to donate!

We deeply appreciate your support for these five extraordinary young women who will proudly represent Columbia Secondary School in Washington, DC!

Special thanks to Professor Philip Hubbard who led the amazing CSS teams who also won 6 special prizes, more than any other school in New York City.
