Congressional App Challenge

The Congressional App Challenge CAC launched on June 15, 2023, and students are encouraged to register online and submit their apps by the deadline on  November 1, 2023. Register HERE

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is hosted by Members of Congress for middle school and high school students to encourage participation in STEM education, develop coding skills, and create original applications that better their communities.  The Congressional App Challenge is one of the most prestigious national prizes for students in computer science.

The CAC is open to private, public, and homeschool students who reside in, or attend, school in the 31st Congressional District of Texas, which now includes Bell, Bosque, Burnet, Coryell, Hamilton, and Williamson counties.  To confirm your federal representative and congressional district, please click here.

Congressman Carter will announce the winner from his district in December, 2023. 

The winner of the app challenge will be invited to a celebration called the #HouseOfCode in the U.S. Capitol Building, Washington, D.C. in early 2024.

The winning TX-31 app will be on display electronically in the Capitol along with all other participating congressional winners.
