Representing the 22nd District of Texas

Congressional App Challenge

The Congressional App Challenge began in 2013 to encourage students to become more involved in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields, specifically in coding and computer science. Participants will create and exhibit a software application, or "app," for mobile, tablet or computer devices. The Challenge is open to all TX-22 high school students. Students can participate individually or on a team.

The winning app will be displayed in the US Capitol Building and on two websites, which can be found here and here. The first place winner or team will also be recognized by Olson and will receive Amazon Web Services Credits.

The competition will run from June 4, 2018 through October 15, 2018. Winners will be chosen and announced in December. More information on the challenge can be found here. To apply and submit an application, please visit this website
