U.S. Congressman Anthony Gonzalez’s (R- Rocky River) officially launched the 2020 Congressional App Challenge in Ohio’s 16th District. The Congressional App Challenge is hosted through the U.S. House of Representatives and provides students across the country an opportunity to compete with their peers as they learn to code and gain hands on experience in computer science.
“Innovation and technology are the future of our economy, and it is critically important that our education system reflects that,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “The Congressional App Challenge’s mission is to inspire, include, and innovate efforts around STEM, coding and computer science education, and I am proud to bring this competition to students in Ohio’s 16th District as a way to further that mission here in Northeast Ohio.”
Middle and High School students currently residing or attending school in Ohio’s 16th District are eligible to participate in the Congressional App Challenge and may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four. Participants must submit their app along with required materials and any additional accompanying information through the official competition website at www.CongressionalAppChallenge.us before October 19, 2020 for a chance to have their app featured on a display in the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
