Info for Parents & Guardians

Parents and guardians can play a pivotal role in a child’s journey towards learning a new skill.  With your help, we can encourage more students to create their own apps, and connect them and their efforts to their Member of Congress.

The best way parents can support the Congressional App Challenge is to get their children involved, and to let your Member of Congress know you care about STEM and coding education.

Below, you’ll find advice as well as promotional material that you can use to share information about the 2017 Congressional App Challenge. Please feel free to edit the material as you see fit. Thank you so much for your support for the Congressional App Challenge, and for whatever assistance with outreach you can provide.
