Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster

Representing the 2nd District of New Hampshire

Congressional App Challenge

I am pleased to announce this year’s Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a competition designed to encourage student participation in computer science and coding. Students are encouraged to register online by September 10th before submitting their app by November 1st.

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. Any programming language is accepted, 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 New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District. Students entering the competition must submit their app at during the Competition Submission Period between now and November 1st, 2019.

The winner from the 2nd Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on the Congressional App Challenge website. The winning app will also be eligible to be on display in the U.S. Capitol, where winners from across the country will be honored. For more information, please visit the official Congressional App Challenge website or email, or contact Tom Giancola of my staff at
