App Challenge

In 2013, leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and at the Internet Education Foundation sought to foster an appreciation for computer science and STEM. And so, through House Resolution 77, they created the Congressional App Challenge to encourage middle and high school students to pursue careers in tech through a nationwide coding challenge.

Every year, Members of Congress challenge students in their districts to create and submit their original apps for a chance to win the Congressional App Challenge (CAC). Each challenge is district-specific. U.S. Representatives publicly recognize their winning teams and each winning app may be put on display in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year.
