House App Contest

Congressional App Challenge


Each year, the House holds a Congressional App Challenge to engage students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields.  Established in 2013, it’s a nationwide event in which middle- and high-school students from across the nation create and exhibit apps for mobile, tablet, or computers.

Eligible students can compete individually or up to teams of 4.  Any programming language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or “block code,” is accepted, but only apps created after October 19th, 2020 can be entered.

 Students can register and submit their work here; the deadline is Monday, November 1.

The winner from our 15th Congressional District will be chosen by a panel of expert judges and will be featured on, and might also be exhibited in the U.S. Capitol.

For additional information, please call my office or visit the Congressional App Challenge website.
