Cash awards are presented in two categories to the top three posters judged to exhibit either engineering or scientific quality.  Participating high school students select a “People’s Choice” award by “investing” $5,000 in play money to what they believe is the most promising technology, project or research.

ReBUILDetroit scholars Leonardo Romero-Barajas and Victoria Krajcz were among the 1st and 3rd Scientific Quality Award teams respectively.

Congratulations to the 2018 winners!
