Congressional App Challenge

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC), an annual coding competition designed for students interested in pursuing a career in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, math, and computer science, has officially opened. Students entering the competition are encouraged to register online by September 10th and must submit their app here before the November 1, 2021, submission deadline.

Established in 2015 by the U.S. House of Representatives, students compete against their peers nationwide by creating software applications (also referred to as an “app”) for mobile, desktop, or other devices using coded language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or "block code.”

The CAC is open to all middle and high school students in Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District and students have the option of competing in teams or as individuals.

The winner from Tennessee’s Sixth District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on the Congressional App Challenge Website. Winning software applications will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol and winning students will be invited to a reception in Washington, D.C.

For complete details about the rules and requirements, please visit the official Congressional App Challenge website, email StudentSupport@CongressionalAppChallenge.us, or contact Ray Render in our Gallatin District Office at (615) 206-8204.
