FPSPI Scenario Writing Competition requires a student to write a futuristic story based on one of the Future Problem Solving Program current year topics. The composition must contain 1500 words or less and must be at least 20 years into the future. Scenarios are evaluated based on their content, creativity, and the author’s personal touch. The top three scenarios per division from each Affiliate Program may be submitted to the International Scenario Writing Competition.

In 2017, two hundred and six scenarios were submitted to the International Scenario Writing Competition: 69 Junior, 72 Middle, and 65 Senior Division. The following students were named the 2017 International Scenario Writing champions.
