Congressman Brad Schneider recently announced the launch of the 2020 Congressional App Challenge in Illinois' 10th District.

The Congressional App Challenge is an annual nationwide competition that encourages students to learn and use science, technology, engineering and math skills by coding their own application, or "app," for any digital device.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

The winning teams will have their application displayed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and featured on the congressman's website, schneider.house.gov.

The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle or high school students who either live or attend school in the 10th District, regardless of skill level. Students can choose to participate individually or as part of a team of up to 4 students, as long as two of the team members meet eligibility requirements.

To enter, participants must upload a video showcasing their app and an explanation of what they learned throughout the app-making process.

The deadline to register and submit an app is Oct. 19; registration indicates your intent to compete. Early registration significantly increases the chances for a successful challenge. Early registration does not obligate you to submit an app.

Additional resources and registration information is available on the Congressional App Challenge website, www.congressionalappchallenge.us.
