U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Fullerton), national Co-Chair of the Congressional App Challenge, announced the winners of his district’s competition: Christopher Jhaveri, Christopher Leung, Jason Kwan, and Santiago Torres of Los Altos High School. The winning students created Election Connection, a mobile application designed to educate voters on candidates’ political positions.
Rep. Royce made his announcement during the competition’s Exhibit and Awards Ceremony last night at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.
“I enthusiastically chaired the Congressional App Challenge this year because its mission aligns with my priorities: promoting STEM education in our schools and encouraging students to pursue technology-related interests. Congratulations to Los Altos High School and all of the participating teams. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of the talented competitors,” said Rep. Royce.
“As national Co-Chair of the Congressional App Challenge, Congressman Royce has led the charge in promoting STEM and computer coding education in our schools. Over 2100 students creating 650 apps participated in this year’s Challenge, a 20% jump from last year,” said Melissa Medina, Congressional Affairs Director for the Congressional App Challenge.
