Congressional App Challenge

Washington state continues to be a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with more than 313,000 high school students and 165,000 two-year college students enrolled in Career and Technical Education programs.

I have had the opportunity to see the technological creativity of students in classrooms across Northwest Washington first-hand.

I am calling on all middle and high school students to tap into that creativity and participate in the Congressional App Challenge.

The competition, which runs through November 1, 2019, is open to high school and middle school students who live in or attend school in Washington’s Second Congressional District. Students may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four.

The Congressional App Challenge is an opportunity for students to create programs or apps for any platform to collaborate, invent and learn coding and computer science skills.

The deadline to submit an app to my office is November 1, 2019.

I look forward to seeing the creativity of Washington’s Second District students!
