Washington D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) today announced that he will be participating in the 2016 Congressional App Challenge.

“Today marks the first day of the Congressional App Challenge, and I’m ecstatic that my office will be participating for the second year in a row,” said Emmer. “The Congressional App Challenge is a competition created by Congress that encourages high school students from all over the nation to develop their own software application, otherwise known as an app.”

“This competition is an exceptional way for students to develop crucial Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) skills—all while having fun with their friends,” said Emmer. “I am looking forward to seeing what the students of Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District come up with.”
