The Governors School for Science and Technology Programming team has been named a Best in State winner of the Verizon Innovative App Challenge for developing an application concept called Math-IO. The team has won a $5,000 award for GSST and a 16G LG G Pad tablet for each team member.
In addition, the team is now in the running to be named a Best in Nation winner. Prizes for Best in Nation winners are an additional $15,000 award, in-person training from the MIT Master Trainers to turn their concept into a working app, and an all-expenses-paid trip for each team member and a parent or guardian to the national Technology Student Association conference in Nashville this summer.
Also, for the first time this year, Best in State winners are encouraged to compete for the Fan Favorite award. One team will be chosen through crowd voting to win all the same prizes as the Best in Nation winners. To vote, text mathio2 to 22333.
