Each year, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives host district-wide Congressional App Challenges for middle school and high school students, encouraging them to learn to code and inspiring them to pursue careers in computer science. The challenge asks that students create and submit their original apps for a chance to win the Congressional App Challenge (CAC). Each challenge is district-specific.

The winning students’ apps are eligible to be displayed in the US Capitol Building and featured on the House of Representatives’ website, House.gov. Additionally, the teams will each receive a $250 Amazon Web Services credit and are invited to attend the #HouseofCode Capitol Hill Reception in Washington D.C.

2nd Place – Build IT:  Levi Grimm, Matthew Romans, Raymond Moore, Jaiden Santos
