Thanks to the petitions of the FIRST community, over 300 United States Representatives have cosponsored a bill instructing the United States Mint to issue a commemorative coin for educator and astronaut Christa McAuliffe. Profits from coin sales will support FIRST teams. Please ask your Senator to cosponsor S. 239 to help honor an American school teacher hero.
Just saw on the Secret City Website that the event has been canceled.
