I am pleased to announce the 2021 Congressional App Challenge! I hope this opportunity sparks enthusiasm for coding and a passion for problem solving in all participants.
Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide competition encourages middle and high school student STEM engagement. Participants are invited to create an application or “app,” for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, or other devices. A winner from the 24th Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on the Congressional App Challenge website, and the winning app will also be eligible to be on display in the U.S. Capitol, honoring the winners from across the country.
The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students in California’s 24th Congressional District. Students may register as individuals or as teams of up to four. No more than four students are allowed to form a team. If competing as a team, at least half of the teammates must be eligible to compete in the district in which they are participating in.
Registration is now open for interested participants. Students entering the competition must submit their app to CongressionalAppChallenge.us by Nov. 1, 2021.
This is the perfect opportunity for Central Coast students to harness twenty-first century programming and technology to showcase their talent, skill, and vision. Whether you are an aspiring programmer or enjoy coding for fun, I welcome all students to submit an app!
Should you have any questions please contact Jesse Ebadi in my Santa Barbara District Office at Jesse.Ebadi@mail.house.gov or Caitlin Cox in my San Luis Obispo District Office at Caitlin.Cox@mail.house.gov. We look forward to seeing the wonderful work your students submit!
