Joanne Lin of Union High School has been named the winner of Southwest Washington’s Congressional App Challenge, following a vote by a team of judges from science, technology, engineering and mathematics educators and professionals from the region.

In an announcement about the competition, Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, recognized Lin’s accomplishment.

“Congratulations to Joanne Lin on her first-place finish in the Congressional App Challenge, and thank you to the students who submitted an original app design in this year’s contest,” Herrera Beutler said. “I’m consistently amazed by the talent of our Southwest Washington students and am so pleased to see the knowledge and ingenuity they’ve displayed in the world of STEM.”

Lin’s app, called Convenient Eats, aims to connect customers with local restaurants for takeout or delivery.
