LAMB ANNOUNCES 2020 CONGRESSIONAL APP CHALLENGE FOR PA-17 MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
(PITTSBURGH, PA) – Today, Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) launched the annual Congressional App Challenge for middle and high school students living or attending school in Pennsylvania’s 17th Congressional District. Sponsored by the Internet Education Foundation, this nationwide competition recognizes and encourages the programming and app design skills of young constituents and is a great opportunity to showcase programming skills.
“We have strong STEM programs in schools across the 17th District that are helping students become creative problem solvers,” said Lamb. “The Congressional App Challenge is a great opportunity for students to bring their ideas to life, and I encourage students of all coding levels to participate.”
Students can register individually or in teams of up to four individuals, but please note that students may only register in one congressional district. Students can visit the House of Representatives website to confirm a congressional district address.
One winning individual or team selected from PA-17 will be announced in December. The winning app is eligible to be displayed in the United States Capitol Building and featured on House.gov, the official website for the United States House of Representatives.
All entries are accepted by registering and submitting the app online by 12:00 p.m. EST on Monday, October 19, 2020. Students should visit the Congressional App Challenge website to submit a registration form.
