Congressional App Challenge


Congressional App Challenge logo

Since 2015, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart has been hosting the Congressional App Challenge. Any student in middle or high school in FL District 25 can participate, even if they’ve never coded before. 

You can check if your school is in FL District 25 by visiting this link:  

In this nationwide competition, students compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their apps for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice. I encourage students of all skill levels to take the plunge and learn to create their own apps. During the open registration period, students can register by visiting the: Student Registration Portal 

The app can be a game, a tool--whatever they're interested in--on any platform. The app of the winning students or teams will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website (, and displayed in a U.S. Capitol exhibit. There is also an opportunity to win prizes.
