There is a group of students from WNY that need your support to take their design to the next level and win a international competition. Nine eighth-grade students from Mill Middle School, in Williamsville Central School District, designed a city on the moon called Polaris to compete with students across the United States and the world. After winning Western New York regionals in earlier this month, Polaris earned a spot to compete at the international level.

This is your chance to support hard working students right here in our backyard. The voting is now open and will continue until this Friday, April 2nd. Buffalo loves to get behind it's own and this is another opportunity that only takes a few minutes of your time.

According to the bio/post on their page, the students say:

Polaris should win the People’s Choice Award because above everything else, a city is only a good city if the citizens are healthy and happy. Polaris is a place where people of all backgrounds, sexualities, genders, and cultures can all come together and be citizens of Polaris, much like the voters of the People’s Choice Award.

The judging is complete, and the awards ceremony will be on April 7th. BUT there is a way for Western New York to get involved and support a local school.
