Congressman Pete Sessions

Representing the 32nd District of Texas

Congressional App Challenge

I encourage all students to participate in the 2018 Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to increase student participation in computer science and coding. Students are encouraged to register online here by Sept 10, 2018 before submitting their app by October 15, 2018.





Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows middle and high school students to compete with their district peers by creating and exhibiting their software application (also known as an “app”), for web, PC, tablet, raspberry Pi, mobile, or other platform of their choice. We accept apps written in any programming language, for example: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, "block code", etc. 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 32nd Congressional District of Texas. Students entering the competition must submit their app to during the Competition Submission Period between 12:00 PM Eastern Time on June 4, 2018, and 12:00 PM Eastern Time on October 15, 2018.

The winner from the 32nd Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on, and the winning app will also be eligible to be on display in the U.S. Capitol, honoring the winners from across the country.
