Congressional App Challenge

Congresswoman Norton’s District Office Team is announcing this year’s Congressional App Challenge! Every year, the Congressional Internet Caucus initiates a nationwide app competition for middle and high school students to recognize and encourage computer science and coding skills within each congressional district. Since it began in 2013, thousands of students have participated. Students submit entries online, either by themselves or as teams of up to four, to be received by their Member’s office. A panel of judges in each District selects a winning entry. Winners are recognized both in their district and at a reception in Washington, D.C. every year. The winning works are eligible to be displayed in the U.S Capitol Building and featured on the House of Representatives’ website, House.gov. As such, we are kicking off the 2021 Congressional App Challenge for the District of Columbia. Students may compete in the district the reside in, or the district they attend school in. If competing as a team, at least half of the teammates must be eligible to compete in the district in which they are participating. Students may enter their apps beginning in June. The deadline to submit an app will be November 1, 2021. Please let me know if you have any questions, and we look forward to working with you this year!
