The Congressional App Challenge is a competition designed to engage students from across the country in computer science and coding. More than ever before, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills, including computer science, are vital to compete in the workforce, to build a culture of innovation and to spur economic growth. The competition is intended to promote student engagement in STEM fields and to encourage them to pursue skills that will serve them throughout their careers. Students in middle or high school are encouraged to compete by creating and exhibiting an app for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

Every year, the CAC is open to all middle or high school students who live in or attend school in the Eighth Congressional District of Indiana. Students who have already graduated high school are not eligible to participate. 

The Congressional App Challenge winners receive official recognition from their Member of Congress, and their app is displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.
