We are pleased to introduce a lead sponsor of the 16th USA Memory Championship,life’sDHA™. life’sDHA™ , a DSM Nutritional Products brand, is a sustainable and vegetarian source of algal DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 important for brain, heart and eye health throughout life. Fish are often incorrectly thought to be the only source of DHA omega-3. Fish are sources of DHA because of the DHA-rich microalgae in their food chain; life’sDHA is derived directly from microalgae, a renewable, sustainable source of DHA that does not deplete ocean resources, and is produced entirely in the U.S. in an FDA-inspected facility. Today, life’sDHA is found in numerous foods, beverages and supplements for people of all ages. For a complete list of products containing life’sDHA, visit www.lifesdha.com.

The USA Memory Championship is seeking Corporate Sponsors to provide programming for children around the country to teach them the skills of memory – the springboard for all other scholastic and intellectual endeavors for successful lives. Corporate Sponsors would help underwrite local and regional competitions in middle and high schools across the USA. The winners of the regional events would then go on to NY for the National Competition.
Tony Dottino, founder of the USA Memory Championship is leading this “memory movement.” Dottino states, “When you build your memory skills, it builds a more creative, effective and efficient brain…it gives children and adults greater possibilities.”
When he’s not running the USA Memory Championship, Dottino teaches corporate leaders that they can boost their workforce’s productivity and personal satisfaction by learning how to utilize the natural abilities of the brain and its memory power. “We are blessed,” Dottino says, “with this incredible and powerful organic machine called the human brain. My mission is to provide an easy users manual to help people maximize its potential in all area of their lives.” Please contact Tony Dottino for further information at ADottino@aol.com.
