2014 House APP Contest

Dr. Dan Benishek is pleased to announce that his office is accepting entries for the Congressional STEM Contest—a nationwide competition for high school aged students to design an award winning smartphone app. The contest is designed to encourage increased opportunities for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education so that students have the skills to find the jobs of today and tomorrow.

The competition is open to high school students who reside in Michigan’s First Congressional and are 13 years old or older. Students entering the competition must submit their app’s source code online during the Competition Submission Period between 12:00 PM EST on FEBRUARY 1ST, 2014, and 11:59 PM EST on APRIL 30TH, 2014, as well as provide a YouTube or VIMEO video demo explaining their app and what they learned through this competition process.
