Senior Named Winner of Congressional App Challenge

Senior Will Varner was named the winner of the 2022 Congressional App Challenge in Georgia’s Fifth District for his creation, TechDetect--a facial-detection software developed for classroom use. Varner created a Python application that uses students' faces as a way to check themselves in each day.

The Congressional App Challenge is an official initiative of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Members of Congress host contests in their districts for middle school and high school students, encouraging them to learn to code and inspiring them to pursue careers in computer science. Each participating Member of Congress selects a winning app from their district, and each winning team is invited to showcase their winning app to Congress during our annual #HouseOfCode festival. The program is a public-private partnership made possible through funding from Omidyar Network, AWS, Rise, theCoderSchool, Apple, and others.
