Four Xavier College Preparatory Win 2017 Congressional App Challenge

Four Xavier College Preparatory juniors have won the 2017 Congressional App Challenge from Arizona’s 9th Congressional District.

According to the Paradise Valley Independent, Lillian Castle, Emily Conn, Katherine Katsenes and Katherine Thomas created an app called “Teens for Political Action AZ,” which promotes youth discourse and involvement in political issues.

The annual Congressional App Challenge reportedly aims to engage students in coding and computer science. And a total of 190 congressional districts across 42 states hosted app challenges for their student constituents.

The winning students have been awarded $250 in Amazon Web Service credits, and the winners from across the country have been invited to showcase their apps to members of Congress at a reception on Capitol Hill to be held in April, the article said.
