FORT PAYNE, Ala.-- Fort Payne sophomore, Orlando Rodriquez-Valdez, was recently awarded the 2021 4th District Congressional Digital App Challenge Award, according to an announcement made by U.S. Representative Robert Aderholt. 

The Congressional App Challenge was created in 2015 as a nationwide competition. This challenge allows students to compete against their peers by creating an app and promoting innovation and engagement in computer science. In the first four years, the challenge inspired over 14,000 students across 48 states. 

This contest is held in every Congressional District to encourage students to get involved in STEM courses. STEM is a curriculum that is based on four specific disciplines- Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Orlando created an app called Cyberstudy, which uses quizzes to help students prepare for tests.
