NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Norview High School student won the Congressional App Challenge for Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District.

Tyler Marshall, a senior in the Leadership Center for the Sciences and Engineering, submitted an app called “HourLogger” for the competition and won.

Congressman Bobby Scott hosted the Congressional App Challenge — a competition aimed at encouraging students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. The apps were judged on quality of the idea, implementation of the idea, and demonstrated skill in coding and programming skills.
