Congressional App Challenge

I am always impressed by the technological innovation I see across Eastern Washington. The Congressional App Challenge is a great opportunity for students to hone their coding abilities and learn from other tech enthusiasts across the country.

Students may register as an individual or as a team of up to four people. Winning apps are eligible for display in the U.S. Capitol Building and will have the ability to be featured on the House of Representatives website. Winning students will also be invited to the #HouseofCode Capitol Hill Reception in Washington, D.C in addition to $250 in Amazon Web Services credits. Click here to learn more and register for the Congressional App Challenge.
