The Congressional App Challenge (CAC) is a national competition encouraging student participation in computer science and coding. Congressman Norman’s office is delighted to be hosting this annual competition for middle and high school students (grades 6-12) throughout SC-5.
Officially launched by the U.S. House of Representatives through House Resolution 77 in 2015, the growth of competition has since inspired over 40,000 students across all 50 states to participate in the Congressional App Challenge.
Each participating member of the House of Representatives accepts submissions from his or her congressional district. Congressman Norman represents South Carolina's 5th congressional district, which includes all Cherokee, Chester, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Lee, Union and York counties and parts of Spartanburg and Sumter counties. (If you are unsure of who your member of Congress is, click here to find that information online.)
Students are encouraged to register as individuals or as teams and submit their app by November 1, 2023. The winning app of SC-5 will be eligible to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building for a year and winner(s) will be invited to #HouseofCode Capitol Hill Reception in Washington, D.C.
