The Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation, a Federal government agency located in Auburn, New York, is pleased to announce the national Call for Entries for the 2009-2010 “Christopher Columbus Awards” program. The awards challenge students in grades 6, 7, and 8 to explore opportunities for positive change in the local community.
