Frankel Announces Congressional App Challenge

Rep. Lois Frankel (D-District 21) recently announced the start of the 2018 Congressional App Challenge. This annual competition encourages local middle school and high school students to learn how to code, build their own mobile app and get involved in STEM education.

Registration is now live, and students should sign up online by Sept. 10 and submit their app by Oct. 15. The competition is open to anyone who meets the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience.

A winner will be selected by a panel of local judges and honored at a ceremony with Frankel. The winning app may be featured on a display in the U.S. Capitol building, on and on the Congressional App Challenge web site.
