Challenge description:

AVMv8 added box storage to Algorand smart contracts. Box storage is a new way to store data on-chain and offers a lot of improvements over global and local storage. With box storage you can have an unlimited number of storage segments up to 32KB each. Beaker, a python framework for writing smart contracts, makes working with boxes seamless for developers. Using Beaker, write a smart contract that leverages box storage. Ideally, the smart contract should use box storage to accomplish something that isn't possible with global or local storage.
