2018 Congressional App Challenge

The 2018 Congressional App Challenge is now underway!  They welcome and encourage all high school students from Connecticut to participate.

Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014, this competition is a nationwide event intended to engage students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM fields.  This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app”, for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

Students may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four.  We encourage each student or group to visit the official challenge website <http://www.congressionalappchallenge.us/> for resources and competition details, including important dates, rules and submission requirements.  The deadline for submissions is October 15.

The apps will be judged by experts within the academic field and winners for each participating congressional district will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website<http://www.house.gov/> and displayed at a U.S. Capitol exhibit. All five Connecticut Congressional Districts are participating.

We hope your students will participate in this exciting event.  

CTCSTA will be hosting a reception for all five winning teams at the Connecticut State Capitol on Thursday, May 23, 2019.
