Washington D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) today announced the winner of the 2017 Congressional App Challenge:

“For the past three years, my office has participated in the Congressional App Challenge which aims to encourage middle and high school students from all over the nation to develop their own software application, otherwise known as an app. I am proud that my office has participated in this program since its inception. STEM skills are of vital important to the workforce of tomorrow, and I am glad that students across my district are learning and practicing these important skills.  

“I want to congratulate this year’s winning team: Jessica Tober, Erika Mork, Ella Mork and Samantha Pieper from Central Middle School in Norwood Young America. Their app, ‘Time Resurrection’ is designed to plan your day, which includes a checklist function for your long list of homework assignments, and a questionnaire to help determine the best time in your schedule to finish your tasks. We congratulate these young Minnesotans and look forward to seeing what they do in the future!”
