Congressional App Challenge Winners

Congratulations to Louisville HS STEM students Roper Stoots, 10th grader, and Christopher Deshawn Rush, 9thgrader, for winning the Congressional App Challenge for Mississippi’s 1st congressional district. STEM teacher, Kristi Jernigan, led classes in several coding lessons and presented the opportunity for her students to apply for The Congressional App Challenge, a public effort to encourage kids to learn how to code, through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of Congress for their district. Their topic was DARE Mississippi and the title Drug Free for an app designed for Mississippi 5th graders taking part in the DARE education program. They are now eligible to participate in the House of Representatives #HouseOfCode event held in Washington DC on April 12 and 13 to showcase their winning app and get recognized for their achievement.
