In this episode of the Startup Junkie Podcast, Jeff Amerine and Haley Allgood sit down with the winners of the Congressional App Challenge, high school students Julian Sanker (Fayetteville) and Lucas Kellar (Springdale). The Congressional App Challenge is a nationwide coding competition which aims to encourage students to pursue STEM education. During the episode, Haley and Jeff talk to the two standout students about their award winning website Crime Map, Python, and future plans.
Our favorite quotes:
Jeff: "What advice would you have for other younger students that might want to try the Congressional App Challenge or get into software development?"
Lucas: "When there is an opportunity, always take it."
Julian: "Just practice... Try, try and try."
