The Congressional App Challenge is a competition aimed at encouraging U.S. high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. The Challenge is intended to highlight the value of computer science and STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
I know how crucial these skills are and want to encourage students to engage in these fields. By encouraging and recognizing our nation’s young programming talent, Congress hopes to shine a light on the growing importance of these skills.
Please note that this competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. I strongly encourage students of all skill levels to participate, to learn how to create their own apps.
Student Sign-Up begins July 26, 2017. Students who wish to submit an app may do so at http://www.congressionalappchallenge.us/
