App Challenge

We are pleased to announce that the Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to encourage student participation in computer science and coding, will be hosting our annual coding competition this year. Students are encouraged to register online and submit their app by November 1, 2023.

Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows students to compete against their peers by creating an application (also known as an “app”) for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, Raspberry Pi or other devices. We accept any programming language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or "block code." The Challenge is designed to promote innovation and engagement in computer science.

The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students in the Fourth Congressional District of South Carolina. Students entering the competition must submit their app to during the Competition Submission Period through November 1, 2023. The winner from the Fourth Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will receive a certificate from the House of Representatives as well as scheduled time with the Congressman to show off their accomplishments.
