Comstock accepting applicants for 2018 Congressional App Challenge until Oct. 15

The office of Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA)is accepting applications for the 2018 Congressional App Challenge.  The challenge is a opportunity for high school students to join with their peers to create their own apps and learn how to code.

“We are excited to see this year’s innovations as high school students across Virginia’s 10th District come together in teams and as individuals to use their coding skills to create new apps.  The Congressional App Challenge is open to all students, even if they have little or no coding experience.  This is an excellent opportunity for our local students to increase their coding skills and compete so their app can be shown on the national stage here in Congress,” Comstock was quoted as saying in a news release.

“As Chairwoman of the Research and Technology subcommittee, I see the importance of innovation in technology every day as we work to keep the United States competitive in our global economy.”

The Congressional App Challenge runs through Oct. 15 challenging high school students to design and create an original app for submission.  Eligible high school students in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District may enter this challenge as individuals or groups of not more than four students and will be judged by a panel chosen by the Office of Congresswoman Barbara Comstock. 

The submitted app can be on any topic, provided it is original, appropriate, and has been made within the last year.  For more information, go to
