The votes of Civil Air Patrol volunteers and friends carried CAP to a third-place finish and $6,000 in the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation's Pilots Choice Awards.

The Civil Air Patrol grant will help CAP and presenting sponsor Air Force Association provide the Aerospace Connections in Education (ACE) Program to K-6 students. The ACE program was developed to provide engaging and meaningful cross-curricular aerospace lessons that support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiatives. ACE registration for the 2015-16 School Year is currently ongoing.

For teachers interested in becoming an ACE Teacher, it's a two-step process.

1. Join as an educator member.
