2017 Congressional App Challenge

Posted on July 24, 2017

Invitation to all high school students to participate in the 2017 Congressional App Challenge.

Officially launched in 2015, this competition is a nationwide event intended to engage students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM fields. This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app”, for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

Students may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four, as long as two of the teammates are eligible to participate in our district. Students entering the competition must submit a video of their app and what they learned through this competition process on the http://CongressionalAppChallenge.us website by noon (EST) on November 1, 2017.

The apps will be judged by a panel of local judges who work within the academic, software, and entrepreneurial fields. The app of the winning student or team in each participating Congressional district will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website (http://www.house.gov), and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit in Washington D.C.
