Sponsored by the Internet Education Foundation, the Congressional App Challenge recognizes and encourages the programming skills of young constituents across the nation, and is open to all middle and high school students living or attending schools in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District.  

Students are welcome to register individually or in teams of up to four individuals, but please note that students may only register in one congressional district.  If you are uncertain whether you reside or attend school in PA-17, please visit the House of Representatives website.

The winning app is eligible to be displayed in the United States Capitol Building and featured on, the official website for the United States House of Representatives.  In addition, the winning student will receive an invitation to the #HouseofCode Capitol Hill Reception in Washington D.C., but please note that the winner will be responsible for their transportation and other expenses.  

For more information about the competition, please contact Reenie Kuhlman in Congressman Lamb’s Allegheny County District Office at (412) 344-5583.
