Sussex Central Students Create “Senior Spotlight” App and Need Votes for Fan Favorite
When it comes to social media, it seems like there is an app out there for just about everyone – even senior citizens.
A group of students from Sussex Central High School created an app for the Verizon app challenge. The app is called “Senior Spotlight” and it helps connect them to other seniors in the area with a text and video chat feature. The group of students who created the app were awarded ‘Best in State’ and received a $5,000.00 grant for the school and each student won a tablet.
They’re in the running for the “fan favorite” award. Winning this gives the school $15,000.00, in person app development training from MIT experts, and an all-expense paid trip to the TSA conference in Florida in June 2017. Voting ends on Feb. 14. You can vote by texting SENSPOT to ‘22333.’
