Students can code apps on any topic, for any platform, using any coding language, making this the perfect addition to your fall classroom plans. Additionally, any app coded after November 1st, 2021, is eligible for submission. Over 40% of Congressional App Challengers are beginners, meaning the program is suitable for all experience levels.
 
Over 300 participating Members of Congress will each select one winning team from their district to be honored alongside other App Challenge winners at the U.S. Capitol in Washington this Spring. Will your students be among them?
