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.
The winner from our 15th Congressional District will be chosen by a panel of expert judges and will be featured on CongressionalAppChallenge.us, and might also be exhibited in the U.S. Capitol.
For additional information, please call my office or visit the Congressional App Challenge website.
