Every year, the U.S. House of Representatives sponsors a Congressional App Challenge for middle and high school students across our nation. The annual competition encourages students to pursue careers in tech through a nationwide coding challenge and receive national recognition.

Every year, Members of Congress challenge students in their districts to create and submit their original apps for a chance to win the Congressional App Challenge (CAC). U.S. Representatives publicly recognize their winning person or team and each winning app may be put on display in the U.S. Capitol Building for one (1) year.

The competition is open to all middle and high school students in the 16th Congressional District. More information can be found here.

All submissions must be done online and are due by Thursday, October 24.
