House App Contest Announced!


2014 House App Challenge Flyer[3]_0

Did you know that the U.S. House of Representatives kicked off its first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, the “.”? The contest is designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields. High school students from participating congressional districts may enter the competition by creating and entering an app for use on either a mobile device, tablet, or computer. Students must provide a video explaining their app and what they learned through the competition process. Participating students will have opportunities to work with local STEM educational partners who can mentor and assist them with their app development. All entries must be completed by midnight EDT on April 30, 2014. Learn more and register to participate here.
