Congresswoman McBath is proud to announce the 2021 Congressional App Challenge, a competition designed to promote innovation and inspire student engagement in computer science, coding, and technology. This year’s competition is now open for students to register. All submissions will be due on November 1st, 2021. Students can register for the competition here

The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students who live and/or attend school in Georgia’s Sixth District. Participants are encouraged to register to compete by October 19th and make their final app submission no later than November 1st. 

Officially launched by the United States House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows students to compete against their peers by creating an application (also known as an “app”) for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, raspberry Pi, or other devices. The competition accepts any programming language: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or "block code".

The results of the challenge will be determined by Rep. McBath and a panel of expert judges. The judging period will conclude by November 22nd, 2021 and winners will be announced within the first two weeks of December. A virtual ceremony will be hosted by our District Office for all competitors and their family members. The winner from each congressional district will be featured on CongressionalAppChallenge.us. The winning app will also be eligible for display in the U.S. Capitol.
