Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney is calling on all middle and high school students in her congressional district, which includes Greenpoint, to participate in this year’s Congressional App Challenge.
The challenge accepts computer program apps written in any programming language for any platform.
Winners will be selected by panels of judges from the local community and honored by their member of Congress.
The apps may be featured on display in the U.S. Capitol building, and on the House of Representative’s website.
“Since its founding, this competition has inspired thousands of students nationwide to learn to code,” Maloney said. “I encourage all students, no matter how much or how little experience they have with coding, to give it a shot and create the app you believe we need.”
The submission portal is now open. The deadline for student submissions is October 19.
The competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements.
