Congressional App Challenge

The information below was for the 2022 competition. This page will be updated when we have more current information for 2023.

Established by the United States House of Representatives in 2014, the Congressional App Challenge (CAC) encourages students to create and submit their own app for the opportunity to receive national recognition. This year, Congresswoman Trahan is excited to welcome students from the Third Congressional District to participate in the 2022 Congressional App Challenge.
