Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) released the following statement today announcing the launch of the third annual Congressional App Challenge:

“The third annual Congressional App Challenge is now live! This Challenge is a great opportunity to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in the STEM education fields that create jobs and fuel innovation in America. With new apps for electronic devices popping up every day, it’s time for our students to show what they can do. I look forward to seeing the talents of our Sixth District students take shape through technology.”

Additional Information: Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, the Congressional App Challenge is a nationwide event that allows students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or app, for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. It is open to all middle and high school students in the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia, and students may participate individually or in teams of up to four. The deadline for all submissions is November 1, 2017. Winning apps may be eligible for display in the U.S. Capitol Building. Interested students, educators, or parents/guardians may contact Congressman Goodlatte’s office at (202) 225-5431 should they have any questions about the Challenge.
