Calling US students in high school and middle school with an idea for an app! Congress has posted a "Congressional App Challenge." The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2022. Teams of 1-4 students can tackle the challenge.

Interested students should check first to see if your congressional district supports the challenge; there is a list (No map? C'mon, Congress...) of where the Representatives support the event. If a Congressperson is not listed in support, you can even email him or her to promote it.

One of the key technologies permitted is "web apps." Think about building an app -- a "finished product," not a "construction zone." The ArcGIS Instant Apps provide great opportunity. See the rules to make sure you conform, then design carefully, build and test thoroughly, and share publicly.
