Bonamici inviting youth to join STEM contest
Education Congresswomans office will oversee the House App Contest academic competition
Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-Oregon) has announced that her office is participating in the first annual Congressional Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academic Competition, known familiarly as the House App Contest.
Established by members of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is a nationwide event designed to encourage high school students to express their creativity while participating in STEM education fields.
Students across the country will compete by creating and demonstrating a software application, or app, for mobile, tablet or computer devices.
The contest is open to all high school students in Oregons 1st Congressional District. Students entering the competition must submit their apps source code online through April 30, as well as provide a YouTube or VIMEO video demonstration explaining their app and what they learned through the competition process.
Winners from each participating congressional district will be acknowledged in a district awards ceremony and featured on House.GOV. There will also be a display in the United States Capitol Building to honor all of the district winners.
