Awards and Competitions
Each year during National Engineering Week, the Society of Fire Protection Engineers sponsors the Fire Protection Award at the National Future City Competition.
The National Engineers Week Future City Competition is a program developed for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students to help them discover and foster interests in math, science and engineering. Students work in teams under the guidance of a teacher and a volunteer engineer mentor to design and build a city of tomorrow.They create cities on computers and then build three-dimensional, tabletop models to scale.Students also write brief narratives describing their city and must present and defend their designs at the competition before a panel of engineer judges who test the depth of the teams’ knowledge.

The Fire Protection Engineering Award is given to the team that best incorporates the principles of fire protection engineering into the design of its city.
