GLTHS Student Wins Congressional App Challenge

LOWELL – Today, Congresswoman Lori Trahan (MA-03) announced Greater Lowell Technical High School student, Madisyn Koza, as the winner of the Third Congressional District’s annual Congressional App Challenge (CAC).

Koza’s application, “CarbonCalc”, was selected by a local judge from the pool of submissions from middle and high school students who participated in this year’s competition.

“The Congressional App Challenge is a tremendous opportunity to recognize and celebrate the incredible innovation and technical abilities of students here in the Third District and across the nation. It’s always incredible to see the issues our students tackle and the creative problem-solving approaches they take,” said Congresswoman Trahan. “I’m grateful to all of the students who put countless hours of hard work into their submissions and made this decision difficult for our judges. Congratulations to Madisyn for being named this year’s winner. Her work is going to make a true impact on the environment. She’s making the Third District and Greater Lowell Technical High proud!”

The “CarbonCalc” application is designed to help people better understand their personal impact on the earth’s climate by measuring their carbon footprint. The app measures these users’ carbon emissions and offers helpful tips and solutions to decrease individual emissions, leading to a healthier planet.

“In making Carbon Calc, I was able to address the environmental issues I’m learning in school using programming. I am so happy that I was able to share the outcome through the Congressional App Challenge. I’m honored to have won and look forward to working further on Carbon Calc, attending House of Code, and making even more apps in the future,” said Madisyn Koza.
