WINFIELD — Two Winfield Middle School students are headed to Montgomery later this month to compete in front of a state convention and Governor Kay Ivey as part of The Governor’s App Challenge.
The Governor’s App Challenge is a statewide computer programing competition for Alabama students. According to the web page for the challenge, “The goal of the challenge is to allow more students to gain recognition for their mastery and application of computer programming and design.”
Two eighth grade students at Winfield Middle School, Ivey Blake Sims and Lily Parks, have developed a fashion app called “Blitz, Glitz & Fitz” that they will be taking to Montgomery to compete against other finalists from around the state.
“Our app picks an outfit for you, based on the event that you’re attending,” Sims said. “You have to answer questions about the event you are going to, and it comes out with several different outfits for you.”
