Congressman John Moolenaar encourages high school students in Michigan’s Fourth Congressional District to enter the 2016 Congressional App Challenge. The winner from the Fourth District will have their app displayed in the U.S. Capitol and on House.gov. “This competition inspires students to learn skills for the job opportunities of the future. It promotes STEM education and will help maintain America’s role as the world leader in technology and innovation,” said Congressman Moolenaar.
Last year’s competition was entered by more than 1,700 students. Some of the winning entries included apps that helped students learn math and study for AP exams. The Fourth Congressional District is made up of 15 counties: Clare, Clinton, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Mecosta, Midland, Missaukee, Ogemaw, Osceola, Roscommon, Shiawassee, and Wexford counties, as well as portions of Montcalm and Saginaw counties.
Entries must be submitted on the Congressional App Challenge website. Details and a checklist for submissions are online at www.congressionalchallengeapp.us. The deadline for entry is noon on Nov. 2. Additional questions about the App Challenge can be directed to Congressman Moolenaar’s Washington, D.C. office at (202) 225-3561.
