Winners                         

BCDC is pleased to announce the winners of the Rising Tides competition. Six winners shared a total prize of $25,000. The selection of six winners was an unexpected twist in announcing the competition results and illustrated just how many different promising solutions were offered. Juror Walter Hood said it best when he stated, “San Francisco Bay is not the place for a single idea. Taken as a whole, the six winning entries begin to tell a story about adaptation to sea level rise.”
