Congratulations Sophia Matar

Three weeks ago, Junior Sophia Matar participated in the Akron TechCorps Hackathon and won first place for designing and building a news aggregator app called “Feed” that collects ad revenue from users and donates money to a charity of the user’s choice. Sophia’s team split a cash prize of $1,000, and will be heading to Columbus on December 11th to be recognized at the Ohio Statehouse for their achievement.  Sophia is a member of the Kent Girl Coders Club and is enrolled in the Information Services & Support career technical program at Cuyahoga Falls through the Six District Compact.  Congratulations, Sophia!
