The Maui Waena STEMworks Club is seeking public help in getting the votes they need to win thousands of dollars for their school.

The team already won $5,000 and tablets for every team winner for placing Best in the State for middle school students in the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge.

The Maui students developed an app that allows people with Cystic Fibrosis to communicate directly with their doctors, other patients and keep track of their daily pulmonary health.


They’re now in the running for the Fan Favorite award.


The winner gets and additional $15,000 for their school, in person app development training from MIT experts, and an all-expense-paid trip to the TSA conference in Orlando, Florida in June.

To help the Maui team win, the public is invited to text the word “CFCONNECT” to 22333 by February 14, 2017.
