Lance Urges Students to Build Apps

March 25, 2014 at 12:38 PM

Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) today encouraged students in the Seventh Congressional District to participate in the first annual House Student App Challenge.  The contest invites high school students from across the Nation to create software applications, or “apps,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.

“New Jersey students are some of the best and brightest in our Nation.  I hope students take advantage of this nationwide event to demonstrate their innovation, creativity and technical savvy,” said Lance a member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee.  “This exciting competition will challenge students to build or expand their interest in science, technology, engineering and math education and compete with other student leaders across the country.”  

This new competition is designed to engage student’s creativity and encourage their participation in STEM education fields.   The contest is free and open to all high school students in grades 9 through 12 who reside in the Seventh Congressional District of New Jersey.   All work must be original in concept, design and execution.  

Sign Up for E-News

Students who would like to participate should contact Ryan McDevitt in Lance’s Flemington Office for further details at 908-202-5297 or visit studentappchallenge.house.gov.

Lance previously announced the 2014 Congressional Art Competition.
