ITEM: Congressional App Challenge: Inspire the Next Generation!
We are counting on educators like you to help us promote STEM education among today's youth.
The Congressional App Challenge is the most prestigious prize in student computer science. Participation in the challenge has grown exponentially and has reached underserved, diverse, and rural student populations.
Every year members of the US House of Representatives challenge students in their districts to create and submit their original apps for a chance to win the Congressional App Challenge (CAC). Each challenge is district-specific. The New Hampshire Congressional District 1 U.S. Representative, Chris Pappas, has signed on and is looking for applications from students in NH Congressional District #1.
Representative Pappas will publicly recognize winning teams and each winning app may be put on display in the U.S. Capitol Building for one year. Additional prizes may also be available. The Congressional Internet Caucus initiates the annual Congressional App Challenge. They have appointed the non-profit Internet Education Foundation to provide the CAC with supplemental staffing and support.
Check it out today and challenge your students to deisgn an app!
