What is the Congressional App Challenge?

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a public effort to encourage students to learn how to code, through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of Congress for their district.
Middle and high school students code original applications for the chance to be selected for recognition by their Member of Congress, win prizes, and have their work put on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC.

Students must either  reside or attend school in one of the districts hosting a Challenge.
