Congressman A. Donald McEachin announced the winners of the Congressional App Challenge 2021: 11th year students Reagan Duffy and Michael Beauchamp from Chesapeake.
They created Cyber ââAdventure, an educational app that teaches young minds about safe cyber practices. Cyber ââAdventure includes a game and trivia on cybersecurity topics that increase in difficulty with each level.
âI am delighted to announce that Reagan Duffy and Michael Beauchamp are the winners of our Congressional App Challenge,â said Representative McEachin (D-VA-04). âCybersecurity is such a big issue in today’s world, and I commend them for their innovative and thoughtful application to increase cybersecurity awareness and education. They demonstrated a clear knowledge and understanding of coding and the importance of staying safe online. I know they both have a bright future ahead of them, and I can’t wait to see their future innovations.
The Congressional App Challenge is an annual competition that challenges students to demonstrate their proficiency in computer science and coding practices by developing an original application. Their app will now be eligible to feature in the Capitol and on the official US House of Representatives website.
