Congressional App Challenge

2019 Congressional App Challenge
Posted on 09/13/2019
Flyer image All middle and high school students from Minnesota’s Fourth Congressional District are invited to participate in the 2019 Congressional App Challenge. This exciting competition is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their creativity and knowledge of coding and app development. Please share this invitation with others in your school and network who are active in youth coding and technology.

This competition is a nationwide event hosted by Members of Congress to engage students’ imaginations and encourage their participation in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app”, for web, PC, tablet, mobile, or other 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 are encouraged to register online before submitting their app by the November 1st deadline.

Apps will be evaluated by a panel of local judges who work in technology related industries and organizations. The winning app will be featured on my website www.mccollum.house.gov and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit.
