Three Mountain Home High School students recently won U.S. Rep. Rick Crawford’s Congressional App Challenge, a news release from the legislator’s office reports.

The Mountain Home team of seniors Grahm Davidson and John Mikolaiskiol and junior Zachary Keville took first place in the Congressman’s yearly competition designed to encourage 1st District students to explore science, technology, engineering and math disciplines.

Mountain Home High School coding instructor Skipper Thurman served as the group’s faculty sponsor for the competition.

The team’s winning app helped Mountain Home residents and visitors find area activities and restaurants they might be interested in.

“Every year I am amazed by the talent demonstrated by students in the 1st District and this year was no exception,” Crawford said. “Congratulations to this year’s winners and the educators who have inspired them.”

The three Mountain Home students will receive Amazon Web Services credits and an invitation to the House of Code reception held in the spring in Washington, D.C., that will feature all of the winners from around the country. 

Almost 30 teams and 100 students across the 1st District competed in this year’s competition, a spokesman for Crawford said.
