The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a competition aimed at encouraging U.S. 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 and 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.
You can register to participate at CongressionalAppChallenge.us. The deadline to submit your app is November 1, 2023.
You can work on your own or with a team of up to four friends, and the sky is the limit on the type of app you create. You can focus on solving a problem or make it a fun game. The rules and guidelines are linked below. You may submit your app any time before the November 1 deadline. Winners will be announced in December.
