The Christopher Columbus Awards is a national, community-based science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM) program for middle school students. The program
challenges the students to work in teams of three to four, with an adult coach,
to identify a problem in their community and apply the scientific method to
create an innovative solution to that problem.
Eight finalist teams and their coaches
will participate in the National Championship Event and compete for valuable
scholarships and the Columbus Foundation Community Grant, plus a $200 development
grant to further refine their idea.
