In 2013, leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives and at the Internet Education Foundation sought to foster an appreciation for computer science and STEM. That year House leadership overwhelmingly passed H.Res. 77, Academic Competition Resolution of 2013, which outlined the plans for Representatives to host yearly district-by-district computer science, (or “app”) competitions for middle school and high school students.
Representative Don Beyer is proud to host the 2021 Congressional App Challenge to showcase the talented STEM students in Virginia’s 8th Congressional District. If you are interested in registering for this competition, please review the 2021 registration flyer (also available in Spanish), the below age/eligibility requirements, and important dates.
