NEW DATE: Due to a winter storm and “likely” power outages, we have decided to move the Challenge Finale to February 25. We want to ensure that no team is unable to present due to a power outage. 

Please join us for the Smart City Challenge’s live “Shark Tank”-like finale with finalist pitches and awards presentation.
