“Congratulations to Kailin Zhang, a senior at Marquette High School, and Sophie Maniscalco, a junior at St. Joseph’s Academy, for being named this year’s winners of the 2nd District Congressional App Challenge!  Their Supergirls Code App claimed the top prize in this year’s competition, and I am extremely proud of Kailin and Sophie’s hard work and dedication.

The Congressional App Challenge is a national competition highlighting the value of computer science and STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, the Congressional App Challenge allows students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.
