Champions of Youth Ambitions (C’YA) is pleased to announce that, the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation Board of Directors has awarded Champions of Youth Ambitions $1,500 in support of educational hands-on science, youth development and the Community Asset Awards.

The Foundation expressed its appreciation for how Champions of Youth Ambitions celebrates community assets and achievements, and works to bring quality enrichment education to youth in Los Alamos.

Since 1997, the LANL Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has worked to inspire excellence in education and learning in Northern New Mexico through innovative programming, collaboration and advocacy.

“We are elated that the LANL Foundation appreciates our contribution to inspire the future leaders of tomorrow,” said Chad Lauritzen, Science Educator for C’YA who recently retired from LANL. “Their work to support not only our goal of making science fun, but to help us recognize those in our community that make it and the world better, is more than we can say.”
