App Challenge

Congressional App Challenge Washington State 10th District

I am pleased to announce that my office is participating in the 2019 Congressional App Challenge.

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 10th Congressional District of Washington, regardless of coding experience.

Submissions are due to by November 1, 2019.

The winner from the 10th Congressional District, chosen by a panel of expert judges, will be featured on, and the winning app will also be on display in the U.S. Capitol alongside winners from across the country.

For more information and full contest rules, please visit the official Congressional App Challenge website at, or contact Dallas Roberts at
