On November 6th, 2014, Damian Medina, a junior student, accepted his award for his submission of a voting app in the IEEE Hack Chicago Challenge. Damian won first place in the high school division with his CHIVOTE winning app. He also received a monetary award and financial support for consulting services from Innov8tek, to further along his app.
Damian worked on his idea many nights and attended Lake View Tech Crew's sessions on app development to further his work. The Computer Science department and Lake View is very proud of his accomplishment and look forward to continuing to support his future endeavors as he continues being a trailblazer for other students.
