This year, JPS took home the following awards:

  • Best Virtual City (The Lost Phoenix)
  • Best Model (Ostaden)
  • Preparedness for Natural and Human-made Disasters (Ciudad Rota)
  • Best Solar Design (Ostaden)
  • Most Practical Design (The Lost Phoenix)

To top it all off, The Lost Phoenix won first place overall! Team members and their coach, Mr. Koupal, will be going to national finals in Washington DC in February to represent the state of Minnesota. As with previous years, the team is raising funds to help offset travel and lodging costs for the trip. If you’re willing and able to contribute, you can make a donation on their GoFundMe page.

Congratulations to ALL the students participating in this exciting event!
