Down to the wire

Friday, Oct. 11, 2013

This morning, the results from the Communications and Architecture juried contests were announced and our standing remained at 11th place for the overall competition. The better news, however, is that we took 1st Place in Comfort Zone and Home Entertainment and tied for 2nd in Hot Water. We also have a 1st Place finish in Energy Balance, but it was a 19-way tie! Isn't it amazing that all of the teams were able to complete their competitive tasks and still produce more energy than their homes needed to do so? A few years ago, this was a hotly contested portion of the competition. It just shows how quickly technology has evolved to enable truly "smart" homes and lifestyles.

Tomorrow, the Engineering contest and the overall winners will be announced. You can watch livestream video of the final Awards Ceremony, Saturday, October 12, 10 a.m. here. Go Broncos!
