Abigail Black, Maggie Kate Dixon, and Kaitlyn Pesto won the Governor's App Challenge on April 30. These 3 young ladies worked together to create an app that quizzes you about Alabama's Governors. Before these young ladies were even named the winners of the competition, they were approached to share their app as part of student demonstrations at the Alabama Educational Technology Conference in Mobile this summer. They were also approached to share their app with Alabama Public Television to be used in training with teachers and administrators on how technology can be incorporated across the curriculum. Lastly they were approached by a media consultants from Huntsville to get photos and have information sent to the Huntsville TV stations. The best part of all was the $1,000 that was split among the three. RET is very proud of these outstanding young ladies.
