I invite all high school students from Utah's 2nd Congressional District to participate in the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, “The House STEM App Challenge.”  This new competition is designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields. 

Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event that allows 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 submitted apps will be judged by an appointed panel of individuals within the academic, software and entrepreneurial fields.  The winning student’s app in each participating congressional district will be featured in the U.S. Capitol. 

I hope that you will participate in this exciting competition!  Should you have any questions or concerns, please call my Salt Lake City Office at 801-364-5550.

Key Dates

App Submissions: July 26–November 1.
