Congresswoman McBath is proud to announce the 2019 Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to promote innovation and inspire student engagement in computer science, coding, and technology. Students are encouraged to register online by September 10th before submitting their app by November 1st, 2019.

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 (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 Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students in the Sixth Congressional District of Georgia. Students entering the competition must submit their app to CongressionalAppChallenge.us.

Chosen by a panel of expert judges, the winner from the Sixth Congressional District will be featured on CongressionalAppChallenge.us. The winning app will also be eligible for display in the U.S. Capitol. For more information, please visit the official Congressional App Challenge website at CongressionalAppChallenge.us, or contact Christopher Jones at (470) 773-6330 or christopher.jones3@mail.house.gov.
