Three tech-savvy high school students from Maine were selected as winners of the 2020 Tyler Technologies Maine App Challenge, a contest that encourages students to develop a mobile application and create a video to showcase their design. 

Tyler received a record-breaking 42 submissions in this year’s competition. The winners received scholarships totaling $10,000. 

CEHS was well represented with submissions from:

Connor LaBonty (Class of '20)Sarah Hagan (Class of '21)Jinya Fisher-LaPlante (Class of '21)

Sarah Hagan was awarded 2nd Place for “Physics Phone a Friend" and received a $2500 scholarship.  The app is an educational tool to help students with physics. The core of the app features a calculator that allows students to fill in known values for kinematic equations. The app includes a mascot and jokes that are displayed when the correct answers are given.
