Two African-American Female Computer Science Students Win Mobile App Competition

This may be a bit of old news (it happened 2 months ago), but I wanted to share it anyway as the female students of Youth APPLab begin to brainstorm an app designed especially for girls.  This post simply serves as an acknowledgement of what has been accomplished by two African-American Female Computer Science students at Spelman College.

Jonecia Keels and Jazmine Miller have won the 2010 AT&T Big Mobile on Campus Challenge with their HBCU Buddy mobile app that provides detailed information about each and every HBCU in the nation.  [SIDE NOTE: Uplift was working on a similar app and these women beat us to the bunch line. 🙂  We’re still working on our app and hope to release it soon.]

Please read more about this duo and the competition in this BlackWeb2.0 article and share your thoughts?
