Local middle school students are using their own ideas to build cities of the future.

The students showed off their projects at the Future City competition Saturday.

With an engineer as a mentor, teams of kids designed model cities with computer software and built scale models with recycled materials.

They focused on renewable energy sources and eco-friendly designs.

Winners of the regional competition advance to the national finals in Washington D.C. next month.
