TRIBUTE TO SANKALP YAMSANI
HON. DAVID YOUNG
in the house of representatives
Friday, December 1, 2017
Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and
congratulate Sankalp Yamsani. Sankalp and his fellow teammates created
the winning app, City Recycle Day, as part of the 2017 Congressional
App Challenge. Their team is combined of students who attend Waukee
High School and PrairieView Middle School in Waukee, Iowa.
The Congressional App Challenge encourages students to learn how to
code through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of
Congress from their home district. The team's app is entitled “City
Recycle Day”. It is designed to alert members of a community as to the
date of their next trash/recycle pickup day. It also alerts users of
special pickups and delays.
Mr. Speaker, I am honored to recognize Sankalp and his teammates for
creating the winning app, and I am proud to represent them in the
United States Congress. I ask that my colleagues in the United States
House of Representatives join me in congratulating Sankalp and his
teammates on this outstanding accomplishment and in wishing them all
nothing but continued success.
