Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) has announced the Second Annual Congressional App Challenge for Mississippi’s Fourth Congressional District. All middle school and high school students are invited to participate in the challenge by creating and submitting an original app idea before October 19, 2020.

“The App Challenge highlights the importance of STEM education to our young students. Although the school year may look different than planned, students can use their extra time to dive into computer science and coding. I look forward to seeing the creative apps submitted by our students,” said Palazzo.

Competition Details
Pre-registration for the competition is open, and official registration begins on June 1, 2020.

The deadline to submit an app for the competition is October 19, 2020 at 5 p.m.
