High school students invited to enter 'Congressional App Challenge'


In a bid to help close the gap over the next decade between job opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math and an expected shortfall of qualified graduates for those jobs, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, is participating in the third annual Congressional App Challenge for public high school students nationwide.

Apps for mobile, tablet or computer devices are eligible. Entrants must send a YouTube or VIMEO video that explains the app and what the experience taught the student. The competition ends Nov. 9.

A panel from academic, software and entrepreneurial fields will judge the apps and determine winners in each congressional district. Winning apps will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol building.
