If they do it like they did last year they will probably be announcing the results publicly at the very beginning of April 2020 on Facebook or on Twitter:https://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=62153&p=490602#p490602
I think they will probably be finalizing the short list around March 17, 2020. This is because the members of the selection committee usually all try to be at the annual Call-on-Congress event in Washington where they will be launching the current annual issue of the "On the Rise" magazine and introducing the indivuals who are having their articles published in this year's edition of the magazine. While the selection committee members are still at the Call-on-Congress event, they will probably meet together to compare notes on the newly arrived applications and come up with a short list before they go back home. Then sometime between March 17, 2020 and April 1, 2020 they will make the final selection for 12 featured survivors/caregivers for the upcoming 2020 Colon Camp event and the March 2021 issue of "On the Rise" magazine.
The successful applicants will no doubt be notified privately using the contact information that they provided in their applications.
So, if you want to be the very first to know who is selected this time around you could register for the Call-on-Congress
event and meet with the ColonClub folks there who will be launching this year's "On the Rise" magazine.
Note: This is only my personal opinion/speculation about how things may happen this year. I don't know any of the people on the selection committee and I have nothing to do with the selection pnrocess. The committee might decide do things quite differently this year. Only time will tell.
