totaling $10,000

PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$TYL #tylertech–Five tech-savvy high school students from across Maine were recently
selected as winners of the 2017 Tyler
Technologies Maine App Challenge
, a contest that encourages students
to develop a mobile application and create a video to showcase their
app. The finalists received scholarships totaling $10,000, which were
presented at a ceremony preceding the 1 p.m. Portland Sea Dogs game on
Sunday, April 23, 2017. This year’s winners are:

  • First place: Permit Log by Brian Austin, Nathan Kiesman and Noble
    Mushtak of Marshwood High School is an electronic version of the
    permit log student drivers must complete and submit to receive their
    license. The app captures all the information of the traditional log,
    plus has a timer to track hours driven, stores supervising driver’s
    name, age and license number, and exports to a printer for ease of
    submission.
  • Second place: iExercise by James Newkirk of Telstar High School is an
    exercise tracker that includes a sit up counter, universal exercise
    pacer, walking and running tracker, and more, plus offers healthy
    living tips.
  • Third place: SoPo Spark by Tyler Hansen of South Portland High School
    helps others make the world a better place by creating change and
    spreading positivity through daily challenges, like going through old
    clothes and donating to charity, holding the door open for two
    strangers, or trying to brighten someone’s day.

The Maine App Challenge was developed in partnership with Educate
Maine’s Project>Login to encourage the next generation of professionals
to pursue future careers in science, technology, engineering and math
(STEM)-related disciplines. These five finalists successfully designed,
developed and presented functional mobile applications, and were
rewarded with college scholarships totaling $10,000 in 529 college
savings plans.

“The Maine App Challenge continues to showcase the talent of many high
school students who, we hope, will consider pursuing a career in
technology,” said Chris Hepburn, president of Tyler’s ERP & Schools
Division. “Tyler is excited to catch a glimpse of Maine’s future and
we’re proud to support the winners’ continued education with $10,000 in
scholarships.”
