LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – Representative Rob Woodall has just announced the beginning of the annual Congressional App Challenge, a competition for middle and high school students across the nation. The contest allows students to work individually or in teams to showcase their innovation and coding skills by creating their own software application, or “app,” for mobile devices, computers, or another form of technology.

“The App Challenge provides a fantastic outlet for students to display their creativity and STEM skills as well as represent the 7th District of Georgia’s remarkable school system,” said Congressman Woodall. “I am excited to see what these bright young minds come up with.”

The winners of the challenge will have their app featured in the United States Capitol Building and be invited to Capitol Hill for the annual #HouseOfCode event to demo their apps for Members of Congress. Students can compete individually or in teams of up to four and may begin working on their apps as soon as they like. The application period closes on Friday, November 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.

Additional details about the competition can be found on Congressman Woodall’s website.

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee, the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and the Budget Committee.
