Congressional App Challenge

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a competition for  students, high school or below, to engage their creativity and participate in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education fields. This competition is a nationwide event that allows students from across the country to engage in the fields of coding and computer science by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

The “Congressional App Challenge” is open to all students, high school or below, in Oregon's Third Congressional District. Students entering the competition must submit by November 1, 2017 as well as provide a YouTube or VIMEO video demo explaining their app and what they learned through this competition process.
