Community College Innovation Challenge

The Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC) is a prestigious, two-stage competition where community college teams use science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to innovate solutions to real-world problems, compete for cash awards, and earn full travel support (students and faculty) to attend an Innovation Boot Camp in Washington, D.C.

The CCIC is an annual event in its fourth year. It is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).
