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).
The House of Representatives knows how crucial these skills are and wants 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, regardless of coding experience. We strongly encourage students of all skill levels to participate, to learn how to create their own apps.
Best App: The winners of the Congressional App Challenge will be recognized and honored by their Member of Congress. They'll have their app displayed on the Congressional App Challenge website, and winners will also have their apps exhibited on a digital display in the Capitol Building for the year following the conclusion of the Challenge.
