Jonesboro — Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) is proud to announce that he will be hosting a Congressional App Challenge (CAC), a smart device app competition for students in 9th -12th grades in the First District of Arkansas.
The CAC was created in 2013 with the goal of fostering STEM and computer-based skills which are essential for economic growth and innovation.
“Supporting STEM education and encouraging students to solve real world problems with technology is of vital importance to the future of the First Congressional District.” said Rep. Crawford. “As a result of this realization, we have seen an increase in STEM emphasized programs within our schools as well as educators who motivate more students to explore this field.”
“I am always impressed with the quality of coding and creativity found in apps that are submitted to the CAC and I’m looking forward to seeing what students come up with this year.”
Winners will be selected by panels of judges drawn from the local community and honored by their Member of Congress. Their apps are eligible to be featured on display in the U.S. Capitol building, on www.house.gov and on the Congressional App Challenge website.
The submission deadline is November 1, 2022 and the competition guidelines can be found at Crawford.House.Gov under the Congressional App Challenge tab.
