Huizenga Announces 2019 Congressional App Challenge
Washington, September 5, 2019
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) announced the start of the 2019 Congressional App Challenge (CAC). The CAC is a competition aimed at encouraging middle and high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. The Challenge is intended to highlight the value of computer science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.
This competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. Students of all skill levels are welcome to participate. Students are encouraged, but not required, to register online by September 10th. Students participating in the CAC must submit their app by November 1st.
This is the third year Congressman Huizenga has participated in the Congressional App Challenge. In 2017, Holland Christian Student David Reidsma won the competition with his “BrickSort” App which tracked pieces in LEGO sets. In 2018, Zeeland East student Ethan Visscher won with his entry “Right on Red.”
