PASADENA — Ruben Ghazarian, a 9th grader at the Armenian Academy at Blair High School in Pasadena, California, has been named a 2022 Finalist in the Congressional App Challenge. This competition is the most prestigious prize in student computer science. The Challenge seeks to inspire and innovate efforts around STEM, coding and computer science.

Congresswoman Judy Chu announced the 5 finalists and winner on December 16th. There were 27 students who entered the competition from Congresswoman Chu’s district.
