LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A team of Kentucky middle-schoolers is among eight groups receiving national honors for a mobile app they designed.

The Log ‘N Learn app concept gives information about driver education to help young drivers become more experienced.

The team at Meyzeek (may-ZEEK’) Middle School in Louisville won tablets, and the school receives $20,000 from the Verizon Foundation. The students will work with trainers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop the app.

One of the team members, Mark Raj, said in a statement the recognition allows the students to leave their mark on the school.

The Verizon Innovative App Challenge is aimed at boosting student interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

Meyzeek and the seven other teams were chosen as Best in Nation winners in the competition.
