Officially launched in 2015, this competition is a nationwide event intended to engage middle and high school students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM fields.

Congressional App Challenge allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software applications for web, PC, tablet, mobile devices, and other platforms of their choice.

Congress recognizes that STEM and computer-based skills are essential for future economic growth and innovation in our country. Through this challenge, we hope to highlight the value of computer science and STEM education.

The app will be evaluated by a panel of local judges who work within the academic, software, and entrepreneurial fields. The winning app will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives website and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit.
