2013-2014 Christopher Columbus Awards Program deadline is Feb. 3, 2014
The Christopher Columbus Awards program challenges middle school students 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 receive an all-expense paid trip to Walt Disney World® to attend National Championship Week and compete for cash prizes and the $25,000 Columbus Foundation Community Grant, plus a $200 development grant to further refine their idea. These eight teams also will participate in the Christopher Columbus Academy, an interactive behind-the-scenes look at the science and technology at Walt Disney World®.
Complete details are available here. The deadline for entries is Monday, Feb. 3, 2014. For more information, contact Stephanie Hallman at (800) 291-6020 ext. 3154.
