The competition requires students to develop an app that will be judged by a local panel based on concept, design, and execution.
The app can be working or a fully-developed concept, and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on April 30. Students must also provide a YouTube or Vimeo video explaining their app and what they learned through the competition.
The challenge is open to ninth- through 12th-graders who live in the 12th Congressional District. The competition aims to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, while encouraging young people to pursue careers in these fields.
To enter, students must register at http://studentappchallenge.house.gov/ and create an account on www.challengepost.com.
Anyone interested in serving on the panel can contact Allison Beresnyak at 412-837-1361 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available at Rothfus.house.gov/STEM.
