Higgins Announces Extension for Submissions in Congressional Student App Challenge

May 2, 2014
Press Release
Students Have Until Friday, May 30 to Submit Entries

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) announced that the deadline for submitting entries to the Congressional Student App Challenge has been extended to May 30, 2014. 

“As the school year comes to an end, we know that many high school students have a number of obligations,” said Congressman Higgins. “Because designing an application takes time, we wanted to make sure that everyone who is interested in participating in this challenge, has the necessary time to do so.”

All high school students who live in or are eligible to attend public school in the NY-26 congressional district are invited to design and exhibit software applications, or “apps” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices.  The winning student’s app in each participating congressional district will be featured on the U.S. House of Representatives’ website and will be on display in a U.S. Capitol exhibit.
