Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Co-Chair of the Congressional STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Caucus, announced that Collin Bolles of Saratoga Springs has been named the winner of the 2017 NY-21 Congressional App Challenge.
“I am excited to announce that Collin’s winning entry will be showcased at the U.S. Capitol for visitors from around the world to see,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The North Country is home to many gifted students and I am confident that Collin’s entry will help inspire other young people in NY-21 to pursue STEAM education and careers.”
Collin designed and created an application called “Parking Assistant,” which helps visitors in high-density urban regions find automobile parking, enabling local downtown businesses to benefit from increased customer volume. His winning app will not only be displayed in the U.S. Capitol building, but will also be featured on the Congressional App Challenge website. You can view a video demonstration of his app here.
