West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A huge honor for students at West Fargo's Cheney Middle School today.

Representatives from Verizon came with a check for $20,000 after a group of students won a nation-wide app challenge. There were 1,300 submissions.

The West Fargo team is one of eight selected as a "Best in Nation" team. The 5 member team developed an app called the "Snap Doc App."

Joram Stith - Team Member: “Take a picture of the document and use OCR software and turns into text you can edit”

With the money from Verizon, the team will now work with MIT to get the App into the marketplace.
