Congressional App Challenge

2024 Congressional App Challenge is Open!
Register Here

Each year, the U.S. House of Representatives hosts the Congressional App Challenge. This is an annual coding competition designed to encourage middle school and high school student participation in computer science and coding, regardless of experience. It is an opportunity for students to compete against other peers within Vermont by creating an original application in a variety of programming languages and on different platforms.

To be eligible to compete, a student must be in middle or high school and either:

  • Reside in Vermont

  • Go to school in Vermont

If a student is competing in a team, at least half of team members must be eligible. All students must be in middle school or high school. Full details can be found here  

This app will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol and shown on for a full year. The winners will also be invited to #HouseOfCode in Washington D.C. and have their patent application fee waived! More prizes may be announced at a later date, feel free to view all past winners here.
