A letter from the office of Representative Jim Bridenstien:

 

I am writing to invite your students to participate in the 2017 Congressional App Challenge.

 

Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event intended to engage students’ creativity and encourage their participation in STEM fields. This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app”, for mobile, tablet or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

In 2016, our office participated in the Congressional App Challenge for the first time. The 1st District winner was a student from Bixby Middle School and we are looking to continue to grow and expand the App Challenge.

Students may compete as individuals or in teams of up to four, as long as two of the teammates are eligible to participate in our district. Students entering the competition must submit their apps by November 1, 2017.

The apps will be judged by a panel of local judges who work within the academic, software, and entrepreneurial fields. The app of the winning student or team in each participating congressional district will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit.

For additional details, you can visit www.congressionalappchallenge.us. Updates will also be announced in the coming weeks and provided on our website at bridenstine.house.gov.  For your convenience, you can also download flyers promoting the App Challenge that you can display throughout your classroom or school.

I hope that your school will participate in this exciting event and that you will share this incredible opportunity with your students. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by e-mail or by phone at 918-935-3222.

 

Sincerely,

Cam Thomas
