Social media may be all about sharing photos of you – or your food – but these Cherry Hill triplets are working to change that. They built their own social networking app that’s so unique even the U.S. Congress took notice.

Gia, Armaan, Karina Gupta won the 2020 Congressional App Challenge for New Jersey’s First Congressional District, beating out 6,500 other students and more than 3,000 apps. Their app, “Apollo,” is a networking app for up-and-coming young entrepreneurs. Users can connect online with fellow teen and pre-teen entrepreneurs to provide support, seek advice and share their wins and misses.

308 members of Congress hosted the competition in their districts this year as part of an effort to encourage kids to learn to code. The app isn’t live just yet – but with Congress’ endorsement and supplemental support from the Internet Education Foundation, kids nationwide will be ready to join when it launches.
