Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) announced that her office will participate in the 2014 House Student App Challenge. Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event that allows high school 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.
“I am excited to announce my office’s participation in the House Student App Challenge,” said Brownley. “I believe that this challenge not only emphasizes the important place that STEM has in a 21st century education, but it also gives innovative high school students in Ventura County the opportunity to showcase their talents and entrepreneurial skills in ways that will benefit our community.”
Students entering the competition must submit their app’s source code online during the Competition Submission Period between 12 PM Eastern Standard Time on FEBRUARY 1ST, 2014, and 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time on APRIL 30TH, 2014, as well as provide a YouTube or VIMEO video demo explaining their app and what they learned through this competition process.
