Design an app for Congress
Congressman Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., the U.S. House assistant speaker, announced details for the 2019 Congressional App Challenge. Students create their own software application and winners of the competition are honored by their member of Congress.
The Congressional App Challenge is open to middle and high schools students in New Mexico's Third Congressional District. Students entering the competition must register online by Sept. 10, and submit their application by Nov. 1. The competition accepts applications written in any programming language for any platform. The winning student apps will be chosen by a panel of judges from the local community, according to a press release from the Congressman's office.
"I am excited for the next generation of New Mexico's STEM leaders to participate in the 2019 Congressional App Challenge. Promoting STEM education for our students opens doors of opportunity for our youth to pursue, and I look forward to the new and exciting concepts they create," said Luján in a statement.
For rules and guidelines, as well as information on how students can register for the challenge, visit the Congressional App Challenge website at congressionalappchallenge.us.
