Goodlatte Launches House App Contest

Posted: Updated:

Office of Congressman Bob Goodlatte

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Goodlatte released the following statement today inviting all high school students from the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia to participate in the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, or “The House App Contest.” Congressman Goodlatte is co-chair of the nationwide contest that allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

“The demand for students educated in engineering and technology continues to rise in the United States, but part of the challenge is how to engage students in these subjects and further their understanding of these valuable skills. The House App Contest provides students with the opportunity to showcase their technology skills and learn more about STEM fields. Participating students will design and develop a working app, or design and mock up an app, for mobile, tablet, or computer devices.

“The House App Contest is a great opportunity to promote the STEM fields that are driving American innovation. I know that we have many students in the Sixth District who excel in these fields, and I look forward to their contest submissions.”
