Now is your chance to do something about it. The Congressional App Challenge is now open for all students K-12 living in California’s 39th Congressional District.

The Congressional App Challenge is a nationwide competition designed to engage student creativity and promote their participation in computer science and coding. Established by the US House of Representatives in 2014, this 14-week competition allows students to create and submit their own App for the opportunity to receive nationwide recognition. Students may participate as individuals or in teams of up to four. Winners of the Congressional App Challenge will have their Apps featured on display in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C.

Last year, the 2016 Congressional App Challenge first place winners were: Christopher Jhaveri, Christopher Leung, Jason Kwan, and Santiago Torres of the La Puente Valley Regional Occupational Program at Los Altos High School. The winning students created Election Connection, a mobile application designed to educate voters on candidates’ political positions.
