Congressional High School App Contest

This year marks the first annual Congressional STEM Academic Competition, the “House App Contest.” This new competition is designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields. Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event that allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

The “House App Challenge” is open to all high school students in participating districts. Students entering the competition must submit their app’s source code online by April 30th.

Can I Participate?
  • Members of Congress must opt-in for their district to participate in this competition. If a Member does not opt-in, constituents in their district will be ineligible to participate. Find out if I am eligible.
  • The Competition is open only to high school students who reside in a participating district or who are eligible to attend public high school in that district. Individuals submitting on behalf of teams must meet the eligibility requirements for individual Contestants
To Register

To enter, the student must register for the House Student App Challenge under their participating Member of Congress’ profile and register on during the Competition Submission Period. All entries must be an original in concept, design and execution.
Encourage your member of Congress to participate today!
