Congress Announces 2020 Congressional App Challenge Winners

Have you checked out some of the incredible applications coded by Congressional App Challengers in 2020? All of the winners from the 2020 Congressional App Challenge have now been announced by Congress and each of these incredible student apps are available to view on our website.

The 2020 Congressional App Challenge was our broadest yet, with more Members of Congress hosting in more districts than ever before. This competition was more critical than any prior competition, as COVID-19 interrupted educational cadences for students across the country.

In response to the obstacles caused by COVID-19, the Congressional App Challenge created a series of original initiatives to ensure students around the nation had access to the materials and inspiration necessary to compete in last year’s challenge. Thousands of students pre-registered for the competition during the peak of pandemic lockdown and over 50% of this year’s apps were created to address the COVID-19 crisis on global, national, and community levels.

Winners of the 2020 Congressional App Challenge receive AWS Web Credits, a gift card from Southwest Airlines, and have their winning app displayed at the U.S. Capitol for one year. You can view the full list of winners below.
