Congressional App Challenge
I am pleased to announce that my office is participating in the 2017 Congressional App Challenge. The Challenge will take place from July 26 to November 1 this year.
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 or "app" for mobile, tablet, or computer devices. The Challenge is designed to promote innovation and engagement in coding and computer science.
Enter & Submit
The Congressional App Challenge is open to all students in the third congressional district of Louisiana. Students entering the competition must submit their app at congressionalappchallenge.us during the competition submission period, which runs from 12:00 PM Eastern on July 26 through 12:00 PM Eastern on November 1.
Submissions will be judged on the following criteria: quality of the idea, implementation of the idea, and demonstrated excellence of coding and programming skills.
A panel of expert judges, including tech entrepreneurs and computer science professionals, will decide the winner from Louisiana's third congressional district. Winning apps will be showcased on the Congressional App Challenge's website and the U.S. Capitol.
