“Congratulations to Colby Bowers and Emily Swanson, the team from Sequoyah High School, who created the “School App,” the winning entry from the Third District in this year’s Congressional App Challenge. Like many of their peers, Colby and Emily understand the demands of school events, club meetings, sporting events, and preparing for success in college that can often be overwhelming for students in East Tennessee and across the nation. Thanks to Colby and Emily’s creativity and ingenuity, students now have an app to stay up to date, informed, and organized in an easily accessible and user-friendly manner. All 34 applications received this year were phenomenal, and I thank the creators of every app for their participation and encourage all middle and high school students to showcase their talents by participating in the Congressional App Challenge next year.”
