Sunday, May 23, 2021 was the 2021 Connecticut Invention Convention State Finals Awards Ceremony. Chris Dimou, Roto Frank of America’s President & CEO, sits on the CIC Board of Directors. Dimou and Adam Bristol, Roto Frank of America’s Manufacturing Engineer, digitally judged the 2021 Connecticut Invention Convention.

There were over 600 young inventors who participated in the 2021 CIC. The event usually provides a live, in-person opportunity for youth inventors to display their critical thinking skills, but this year they had to be extra creative to digitally showcase their entrepreneurial skills. The winners selected on Sunday will go on to participate in the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE.) Finalists are eligible for awards, grants, and sponsorships from corporations, foundations, individuals, and academic institutions.

The CIC is an internationally recognized, award winning, 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational program that helps develop and enhance critical thinking and problem solving in kids through invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The convention gives students an introduction to careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM.) Annually over 275 CT schools and 17.000 students grades K-12 participate local CIC programs.
