BOZEMAN - Eight Sacajawea Middle School students have made it to the final round in a competition for their idea for a surviving disaster smartphone app.
Put on by the Verizon Foundation, the challenge asked for students to come up with a smartphone application idea that addresses the needs of the community.
Sacajawea Middle School earned first place for middle schools in Montana. Helena High School earned the top high school in the Treasure State.
On March 18, the Verizon Foundation will announce the top five middle and high schools across the country. Those schools will earn a tablet for each team member along with a $10,000 grant to help develop the idea into an actual smartphone app.
