The CCIC was previously held from 2015 to 2018, managed by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in partnership with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). AACC, with support from NSF, relaunched the competition in 2020 but had to cancel the event due to COVID-19. The 2021 CCIC will be held as a virtual competition.
