September 5, 2019
Press Release

Jackson, MI—Congressman Tim Walberg today announced his office is accepting submissions from students in Michigan’s 7th District for the 2019 Congressional App Challenge. This nationwide contest encourages middle and high school students, individually or in teams, to create a software application on a platform of their choice.
“Having experience with coding and computer science is a valuable door opener for future career opportunities,” said Walberg. “With students back in school, I encourage them to use the Congressional App Challenge as an opportunity to further develop their technical skills and showcase their creative abilities. As a strong supporter of STEM education, I look forward to seeing the innovative work being done by the talented students in our district.”
The deadline to enter the competition is November 1, 2019, and then a panel of judges will evaluate the submissions and select a winning app. The competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. The winner from Michigan's 7th District will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol and on the Congressional App Challenge website along with winners from across the country.
