Congressional App Challenge Registration to Close November 1

Washington D.C.—  The deadline for Congressman Joe Neguse’s Congressional App Challenge is approaching. Application submissions are due on November 1st. The challenge is open to middle and high school students of all skill-levels across Colorado’s 2nd congressional district and is designed to encourage student participation in computer science and coding. Participants have the opportunity to code a unique app individually or in teams of up to 4 participants and compete against their peers. The challenge will encourage students to develop STEM and computer-based skills, essential for economic growth and innovation across Colorado.

“I am incredibly excited to host a district-wide app challenge for the third year in a row to showcase our students’ drive, intelligence and creativity,” said Congressman Neguse. “This competition is an excellent way to encourage computer science and STEM skills that are essential for economic innovation and growth in the future.”

Making investments in STEM and computer-based skills is absolutely essential for economic innovation nationwide. To maintain American competitiveness, it’s crucial that the United States invest in youth now and help acquire these valuable skills.

The challenge will prioritize inclusivity and accessibility for all participants. The competition will accept computer programs written in any programming language for any platform. Learn more about the challenge here.
