Congressman Matt Gaetz Announces Congressional App Challenge Winners in Florida’s First District
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) announced the winners of this year’s Congressional App Challenge during a virtual presentation online last night.
The Congressional App Challenge is a competition where Members of Congress encourage students in their respective districts to create programs and applications using any coding language. Students have the option of competing in teams or as individuals, and the winners from each district present their finished work product in Washington, D.C., the following year at an annual showcase. The challenge exists to encourage students interested in coding to pursue careers in cybersecurity, computer science, and other closely related fields.
The winners of the 2020 Congressional App Challenge, their schools, and their winning submissions are listed below:
1st Place: Alia Scotka and Jaden Griggs, Niceville High School, “Schmoni”
