2014-2015 CCA Competition Update

Dear friends, coaches, educators and supporters of the Christopher Columbus Awards program,

As many of you know, the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation has suffered a serious loss in that our federal funding has been eliminated and we regret to announce that we are unable to complete the 2014-2015 CCA competition year.

We appreciate all the hard work each and every team has put into the creation of their projects, and extend our sincere thanks to the many teachers, coaches, mentors and friends of CCA for their years of dedication to our program and service to our kids.

We regret that the Foundation's 19 years of unique STEM service and education programs cannot continue at this time, but assure you that we are working tirelessly to secure additional funding so that CCA programs can be rebuilt and expanded for the 2015-2016 school year.

In the meantime, we encourage you to move ahead with your team efforts through other competitions and STEM outreach programs. If the Foundation is able to find a path forward, rest assured that we will reach out to all of our friends with the hope of working with you in the future.

If you have any questions or suggestions, your thoughts are ALWAYS welcome. Please contact us Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation at hq@christophercolumbusfoundation.gov.
