Friday, Congressman Frank J. Mrvan announced the details of the 2023 Congressional App Challenge for middle and high school students from Indiana’s First Congressional District.

Each year, the Internet Education Foundation and Members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor the Congressional App Challenge to foster an appreciation for computer science and STEM education.  The Congressional App Challenge is an annual nationwide academic competition for Middle School (6th – 8th grades) and High School (9th – 12th grades) students to create and exhibit their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

Congressman Mrvan stated, “It is my honor to be able to host the 2023 Congressional App Challenge for students in Northwest Indiana interested in the STEM fields.  I encourage all eligible students to participate and look forward to seeing the innovative final products.”

All students must register for the competition and submit their work through the Congressional App Challenge website by 12:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 1, 2023.
