“The Annual Congressional App Challenge is an amazing opportunity for high school students in our area to show off their coding skills,” said Congressman Ted Budd. “As technology continues to evolve, it is becoming imperative for our students to maintain STEM skills in order to compete in the growing workforce. I look forward to seeing the amount of talent that comes from North Carolina.”
Submissions will be judged on the following criteria: quality of the idea, including creativity and originality; implementation of the idea, including user experience and design; and demonstrated excellence of coding and programming skills.
