St. Bede School in Point Breeze won the 14th annual Pittsburgh Regional Future City Competition, the Carnegie Science Center announced Sunday.

Its team, one of 25 participants, won a trip Feb. 17-23 to the 20th annual Future City National Finals in Washington, D.C., where they will compete with 36 other regional winners. The grand prize is a trip to the U.S. Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala.
