Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (MO-02), Chair of the House Suburban Caucus, today announced the winners for the 2020 Congressional App Challenge in Missouri’s 2nd District.
“I am so excited to announce that Kat Crawford and Megan Campbell from Kirkwood have won this year’s Congressional App Challenge for Missouri’s 2nd District. Their In BeTeen Jobs app is specifically designed to help teens access jobs and volunteering activities in their neighborhoods that fit their education, skill sets, and knowledge base. The app matches users with an appropriate job and directs them straight to the application page. Kat and Megan have demonstrated a strong desire to help their peers find jobs, and they have done so in a way that highlights their own unique skillsets.
“The team of judges from LaunchCode chose the In BeTeen Jobs app from 12 impressive entries based on concept, design, and skill. Congratulations, Kat and Megan!”
