Congratulations to students and thank you to judges who participated in the Future City Regional Competition. The Future City Regional Competition was held at the Baltimore Museum of Industries on January 20, 2018. FYI - The "Best Future City Project Plan Award" by the Baltimore Post SAME was given to the team (Sydney, Australia) from Swift Creek Middle School, Chesterfield, VA. The team will be invited to attend/be recognized at one of our upcoming meetings. We were represented at the event by Randy Westfall, Rosanna Laplante and Ola Awosika and served in the capacity of model and presentation judges. Other Baltimore Post SAME Board members also served as online judges of deliverables ( project plan, virtual city, and city essay) leading to the event day.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
