They were part of an app challenge that required them to create an app that would benefit their community; all their hard work paid off. The team consists of six talented children and a group of mentors (teachers) leading the effort. The “Best in State” award for included a table for each of the six students, as well as $5,000 in grant money that will go toward their school’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education program.
