Sussex Tech junior Michael Young of Millsboro won third place in a national video game programming contest held by STEMFuse.com. Michael used his knowledge of video game programming to create a game called Super Venture Quest which competed against submissions from students all over the country.
There were 126 game submissions. Two students from Florida won first place, and second place went to a student from Arizona. Michael received a $150 Best Buy gift certificate for himself and a free one-year subscription to GAME:IT online video development course for the school.
Michael is studying electronics at Sussex Tech.
