Congrats! Winners of our 2020 High School Projects of the Year Competition
Next step? Working toward college scholarships!
Innovative projects from imaginative and hardworking students characterized our Foundation’s 19th Annual High School Projects of the Year Competition, March 11 at the PMI Mile Hi Chapter meeting/DTC, followed by a summer full of filling out college applications.
Judging was by some of the top project managers and project leaders along Colorado’s Front Range who are members of PMI Mile Hi.
Leading the winners was “Kojo Café,” a 100% eco friendly café, based on all biodegradables–even straws made from bamboo–designed to reduce the carbon footprint, by Christina Moreno, from Eagle Crest High School, and “Evolve Landscape Garden Installation,” by Luke Flay, Cherokee Trail High School. Both Eagle Crest and Cherokee Trail are part of the Creek Creek Innovation Campus. Luke’s landscape project plan is part of the project honored at the recent Denver Home & Garden Show at the Colorado Convention Center.
Upwards of 20 student teams competed, exhibiting the projects they had worked on throughout the school year. All projects are based on an age-appropriate version of the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® (Project Management Book of Knowledge), which is used internationally as the “common language” between organizations, corporations and governments throughout the world.

Other projects included a focus on robotics design, engineering & production, digital high school yearbook database, and various digital gaming systems.
And the really good news? All the students are winners and already making a difference in our community!
