Team Ziggaheggins, a team of sixth-grade students from Colvin Run Elementary School, has been named a state winner in the 13th annual eCYBERMISSION competition, sponsored by the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program.

Team Ziggaheggins members Andy Chen, Evan Zhang and Pranav Mishra created an app to alert authorities of forest fires in remote locations via text message.
