Due to popular demand, high school students who would like to participate in the 2015 Congressional App Challenge now have until Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 3PM EST to do so.
The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is proud to be partnering with CSTA on this congressional effort aimed at engaging students, and their Members of Congress, in coding and computer science. Students in participating districts can submit apps that they’ve created (for this program or any another), as long as the apps were created within the last year. Already, there are more than 950 students from 175 Congressional districts in 42 states, signed up to compete.
Students of all coding levels are encouraged to participate, and those who submit their apps to the CAC will only be competing against peers in their own districts. Students can participate as individuals, or in teams of up to four. Panels of local judges will judge the apps from January 22 through February 12, and Members of Congress will announce their district winners on February 22. Winners will be honored by their Member of Congress and have their apps featured on a display in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
Capital One is generously serving as the principal sponsor of the 2015 Congressional App Challenge as part of its $150 million Future Edge effort to help more Americans get the skills they need to succeed in the future. For more information, please visit www.CongressionalAppChallenge.us.
