Eighth graders at St. Teresa's School won a special award in the Georgia Regional Future City competition.

The competition challenges students to design a city of the future with things like energy and food sources.

These students won the award for most sustainable food source.

"We had the most reliable food source so if we had droughts or anything, we would have something to back that up and we'd always be able to feed our people," says Emily Pursel, one of the students on the team.

It took students since the beginning of the school year to prepare.
