STEM App Challenge competition deadline approaching


September 27, 2018

U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler reminded Southwest Washington high school students the deadline to participate in the annual Congressional App Challenge is approaching: October 15.

“I am excited to once again help host this year’s app-building challenge in Southwest Washington and look forward to seeing what comes from our brilliant, young minds,” said Beutler. “This contest offers a great opportunity for students to combine creativity with STEM skills that will serve them in school and beyond.”

This year’s event is open to high school students, with students choosing to work individually or in groups up to four. The competition invites students to create software applications, or “apps,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. The winners will be chosen from a group of judges made up of STEM educators and technology professionals from Southwest Washington. The winning app will be featured on the House of Representatives’ website, House.Gov, and the winning participants will also receive a monetary prize.

To register and read the competition rules, visit Submissions are due by October 15.
