Nine students, all graduates of the Digital Harbor Foundation‘s fall after-school programs in web development and computer programming, spent their Presidents’ Day off from school coding for cash prizes in a website-building competition.

Students worked on their versions of the splash page for what will become the website of a soon-to-launch organization, Baltimore Corps, chaired by Baltimore native, edtech entrepreneur and author Wes Moore. Three cash prizes of $50, $75 and $175 were awarded at the end of the seven-hour competition at the Digital Harbor Tech Center in Federal Hill.

The winning team — Birendra Rai and Glory Barongozi — will be paid to finish the splash page they began coding on Monday. Whether the pair of Digital Harbor Foundation (DHF) Youth Members will be paid to finish the entire website is still being determined.

“The website development has been broken into phases,” said DHF Director of Technology Shawn Grimes. “The next phase is a more complete site. We aren’t sure if the same team will complete the second phase or if we will have another competition and treat it as a new site because it will be quite different.”

As for how much Rai and Barongozi will be compensated for the splash page, that’s still being worked out.
