Press Release

Raleigh, NC– This Thursday evening in Raleigh, Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) will host an Awards Reception for the Fourth District participants in the 2016 Congressional App Challenge, a national contest designed to promote STEM education by encouraging young coders to create a concept or source code for an online or mobile application. Over thirty high school students have worked in teams to develop and submit applications for the competition, and all App Challenge participants are invited to attend the reception, along with their families, teachers, and administrators.

At the Awards Reception, the top five teams will have three minutes to “pitch” their apps before a live panel of local judges in the technology and innovation fields, and the winning team will be selected that evening. The winning app will be displayed on the website and in the United States Capitol Building.  Winners also will be invited to showcase their apps at a House of Code event on Capitol Hill in the Spring of 2017.

The Awards Reception is open press. Details are below.
