Today, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03) announced that her office is accepting applications for the 2023 Congressional App Challenge.

The competition encourages students to build hands-on experience in computer science through building their own app. Students can use any programming language and platform, and there are no limits on theme or topic.

To be eligible to participate, students must be in middle or high school at the time of submission and reside or attend school in Washington’s Third District. Students may register as individuals or as teams of up to four.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for students to apply their skills, build new ones, and develop creative solutions to problems facing our district and world,” said Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez. “I can’t wait to see what our talented students in Southwest Washington come up with.”

Winners will be selected by a local panel of judges, and their app will be eligible to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol and featured on House.gov. Winning students will also be invited to a Congressional App Challenge reception in Washington, DC.

Students entering the competition should submit their application by November 1, 2023 at congressionalappchallenge.us.
