    6. 6. For Each Survey Response to Count:  Each survey respondent must select your organization from the CCF Partner list provided in the survey. Participants must select only one CCF Partner for a selection to be counted on a paper survey. The online survey only allows a participant to designate one CCF Partners.  Each survey response (online or paper) will count equally towards winning the grant.  Only one survey response per individual per topic will count towards the grant.
