press release from the office of congressman jody hice


Congressman Jody Hice announced he will host the Congressional App Challenge for middle and high school students in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District. The Congressional App Challenge is a competition that encourages students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. 

“Members of Congress recognize that STEM and computer-based skills are essential for economic growth, and we’re encouraging students to engage in these fields,” Hice said. “I’m confident that Georgia is home to some of the most creative and innovative students, and I’m excited to see what these young developers create.”  

Each participating Member of Congress will select a winning app from their district, and each winning team will be invited to showcase their winning app to Congress during the annual #HouseOfCode festival. This competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. 

To enter, students must register and submit their apps by Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022. To learn more about the competition or to submit an app, visit CongressionalAppChallenge.us. For additional questions, contact Lauren Sanders at Lauren.Sanders@mail.house.gov.
