High school students have a challenge-pass it along

Tyler Technologies, Inc. has launched a first application development challenge solely for high school students in the state, called Maine App Challenge. With it comes $10,000 in total scholarships to be awarded to the top three finalists.

In cooperation with Project>Login and Educate Maine, the goal is to provide Maine high school students with an opportunity to design, develop and demonstrate a mobile application that addresses a real need within the student’s school or local community. Chris Hepburn, senior vice president of Tyler’s ERP & School Division says this effort could turn a student’s casual interest in software development into a college major, internship, and eventual career in the Maine computer science and technology industry.
