I am pleased to announce that my office is hosting a 2021 Congressional App Challenge.


The Congressional App Challenge is a competition aimed at encouraging middle and 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 (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.


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.


This competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. We strongly encourage students of all skill levels to participate, enabling them to learn how to create their own apps. Students are encouraged to register online and submit their apps by November 1st (*Apps coded after October 19th, 2020 are eligible for the 2021 Congressional App Challenge). Winners of the 13th Congressional District App Challenge will be announced by December 31st. OnJanuary 15th the CAC will make National Winners Announcement.
