Videos from Participants and Advocates

Teams created Baby Shark videos for a 2019 MCC challenge at the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Transportation. Employees could purchase tickets as votes for their favorite video. Tickets were then entered into a drawing for various prizes. Out of six teams, Team 04 OIT App Dev Team won and they raised $550, which was donated to the Senior Dog Sanctuary, Helping Up Mission, and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
