About the Congressional App Challenge

The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a Congressional initiative to inspire students to learn how to code by holding district wide competitions hosted by the district’s Congressperson. Too few students are learning the computer skills that the U.S. job market is demanding, and this is a great way to encourage students to learn important skills they can bring into their future careers.


  • Each participant must be a middle or high school student at the time of entry.
  • Student can compete in the district they reside in or the district in which they attend school.
  • Students can compete as individuals or in groups with up to four members. If competing in a group, at least two students must be eligible to compete in the district.
  • Students may only submit one app. The app must have been created within the last calendar year.
