The Congressional App Challenge, the official student coding competition of the U.S. House of Representatives, is an initiative encouraging American students to learn to code and inspiring them to pursue careers in computer science through a series of district-specific competitions. Over 250 Members of Congress have already signed on to host App Challenges in their districts, with many more expected in the coming weeks. This remarkably bipartisan initiative is co-chaired by Rep. Jennifer Wexton (VA-10) and Rep. Young Kim (CA-39).
Since the first challenge in 2015, the Congressional App Challenge has become the largest student app development competition of its kind in the world. The challenge is open to middle and high school students who reside or attend school in a participating congressional district. Eligible students can submit applications to the program through November 1st, 2022. Learn more and pledge to participate today!
