Abstract: Let $ X$ be a product of Drinfeld modular curves over a general base ring $ A$ of odd characteristic. We classify those subvarieties of $ X$ which contain a Zariski-dense subset of CM points. This is an analogue of the André-Oort conjecture. As an application, we construct non-trivial families of higher Heegner points on modular elliptic curves over global function fields.
