Congressional App Challenge

We are pleased to announce that the Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to encourage student participation in computer science and coding, will be hosting our annual coding competition this year. Students are encouraged to register online by Sept 10th before submitting their app by November 1st.

Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows students to compete against their peers by creating an application (also known as an “app”) for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, raspberry Pi or other devices. We accept any programming language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or "block code." The Challenge is designed to promote innovation and engagement in computer science.

The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students in Florida's Third Congressional District. Students entering the competition must submit their app here during the Competition Submission Period through November 1st, 2021.

The winner from the FL-03, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on the Congressional App Challenge Website. The winning app will also be eligible to be on display in the U.S. Capitol, honoring the winners from across the country.
