For the Tomahawk Leader

WISCONSIN – U.S. Representative Tom Tiffany (WI-07), on Thursday, May 9, announced that his office is accepting submissions for the 2024 Congressional App Challenge.

A release from the Congressman’s office said all students in 6th through 12th grades in Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District are welcome to participate. 

“The Congressional App Challenge is a great opportunity for students in the 7th District that are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to develop an app and compete against their peers,”  Tiffany stated.

The winner from the 7th Congressional District will be chosen by a panel of expert judges and will be eligible to have their app on display in the U.S. Capitol, according to the release.

“Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015, this nationwide effort allows students to compete against their peers by creating an application (also known as an ‘app’) for desktop/PC, web, tablet, mobile, Raspberry Pi or other devices,” the release said. “We accept any programming language, such as C, C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby or ‘block code.’ 

All apps must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18.
