Lunch and snacks will be provided.

The winning app will be featured in an interactive display in the United States Capitol. Additionally, Amazon Web Services has announced that it is providing $50,000 in AWS credits used for cloud computing services to be split among the winners nationwide (with parental consent).  All participants will also be recognized by Congressman Price at a reception at the Friday Institute at NC State on Thursday, November 17.   Teachers and administrators will also be invited to attend.
