Washington, DC – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) announced that his office is now accepting submissions for the 2022 Congressional App Challenge (CAC). In partnership with the Internet Education Foundation, Members of Congress host these competitions for students in their districts as part of a nationwide program created to teach students how to code, foster an appreciation for computer science, and encourage students to learn valuable STEM-based skills.
“The Congressional App Challenge is a unique opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge and creativity, while highlighting the importance of investing in STEM-based education,” said Congressman McNerney. “California’s 9th Congressional District has no shortage of talent, and I am looking forward to seeing this year’s submissions.”
The winning entries will be selected by a panel of judges, and the winning app from the 9th Congressional District will be featured on the House.gov website and the CongressionalAppChallenge.us website. CAC winners may also be eligible to have their app featured on a display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC.
Rep. Jerry McNerney proudly serves the constituents of California’s 9th Congressional District that includes portions of San Joaquin, Contra Costa, and Sacramento Counties. For more information on Rep. McNerney’s work, follow him on Facebook and on Twitter @RepMcNerney.
