In Second place was Deb Rothe from Bethesda Lutheran Communities with the ‘iEnhanceLives’ App. She won an iPod Touch and a $100 iTunes gift card. Third place went to Jenn Howard from Kids in Need Foundation with her ‘Spark’ App. She won a one year NTEN membership and a $25 iTunes gift card.

Additional Special and Bonus prize winners were also selected. The Special prize was awarded to the entry with the most number of votes, and the Bonus prize was an entry that we felt deserved a special mention aside from the other winners. Special Prize Winner – Bronwyn Lucas and Parrish Ravelli from Youth Empowered Solutions (YES!) – YES! App. They had the highest vote count with a total of 188 votes. Bonus Prize Winner – Carol Voss from Independence First – Rock & Roller App. Congratulations to all the winners!
