NHS IT Students Win Congressional App Challenge

Congressional App Award

Niceville High School students Ethan Shelstad, Sam Cota, and Josh Delamater recently won the First Congressional District of Florida Congressional App Challenge. They were invited to Capitol Hill for the House of Code reception where they were welcomed by Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz. At the reception, NHS students were offered $10,000 for their app, which they declined. In addition, their app was mentioned during the Capitol Hill address of Congressman French Hill of Arkansas as one of the best apps developed this year. It was a wonderful educational experience for the students. The students are looking forward to the next app challenge.

L-R: Josh Delamater; Sam Cota; Carrie Foxhall, NHS IT instructor; and Ethan Shelstad.

NHS Junior Selected for Chinese Immersion Program

Picture of Jackson Cook

Jackson Cook, a junior at Niceville High School, will travel to Xi’an, China for six weeks this June as part of the National Security Language Initiative Youth program.

The National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) program was launched in 2006 to promote critical language learning among American youth. The NSLI-Y is part of a U.S. government initiative that prepares American citizens to be leaders in a global world. The U.S. Department of State, in cooperation with American Councils for International Education, awards and administers merit-based scholarships to high school students for participation in summer and academic year immersion programs in locations where the eight NSLI-Y languages are spoken. NSLI-Y immerses participants in the cultural life of the host country, giving them formal and informal language practice and sparking a lifetime interest in foreign languages and cultures.

Jackson is a member of the Eagle Pride band drum line, and is currently enrolled in Chinese 3 Honors, as well as four other Advanced Placement courses at Niceville High School.  He will also be performing in the NHS theater production of Mama Mia, which opens April 4 at the NHS auditorium.
