As a Member of Congress representing the Puget Sound region that includes a booming tech industry, I am pleased invite students to participate in the 2018 Congressional App Challenge.
- A complete submission will include the following components:
- Registration Form (found on congressionalappchallenge.us)
- App Elements
- Name of your app
- The coding language used to create the app
Purpose: Explain your app’s purpose in ONE sentence
Short Description: What is your app trying to accomplish and why?
Tell us about a technical/coding difficulty you faced in programming your app, and explain your solution.
With what you’ve learned, what improvements would you make to a version 2.0 of your app?
3. Demonstration Video
Students must create a 1-3 minute video, showcasing what your app does and how it works.
The video must be uploaded onto a public site like YouTube or Vimeo, and set to public so the judges can watch them.
Tell us your name(s) and the name of your app.
Clearly explain the purpose of your app. (You should be able to do this in one, clear sentence.)
Explain who your app is intended for.
Tell us what tools and coding languages you used to create your app.
