Congressional App Challenge


The Challenge

The Office of Congressman Seth Moulton is proud to host the 2019 Sixth District Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to encourage student participation in computer science and coding, will be hosting our annual coding competition this year. Students are encouraged to register online by Sept 10th before submitting their app by November 1st.

Find the Congressional App Challenge on Facebook, Twitter, or online. Join the conversation with #Congress4CS.

The History

Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows students to compete against their peers by creating an application (also known as an “app”) for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, raspberry Pi or other devices. We accept any programming language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, or "block code." The Challenge is designed to promote innovation and engagement in computer science.

The Congressional App Challenge is open to all middle and high school students in the 6th Congressional District of Massachusetts. Students entering the competition must submit their app to CongressionalAppChallenge.us through November 1st, 2019.

The winner from the 6th Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on CongressionalAppChallenge.us. The winning app will also be eligible to be on display in the U.S. Capitol, honoring the winners from across the country.
