Community College Innovation Challenge

The Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC), led by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in partnership with the National Science Foundation (NSF), is a prestigious competition where community college student teams, working with a faculty or administrator mentor, use STEM to innovate solutions to real-world problems.

Ten community college teams will be selected as finalists and receive travel support to attend an Innovation Boot Camp (dates TBD for 2021). The Boot Camp provides hands-on learning opportunities and coaching designed to build strategic communication and entrepreneurial skills—and includes a student poster session on Capitol Hill, and a formal pitch presentation at the Boot Camp in front of a panel of industry professionals, to determine the first and second place winning teams.
