Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici is inviting students from area middle or high schools to participate in the Congressional App Challenge.

The competition gives students a chance to show off their computer science and coding skills, developing an app for mobile, tablet or computer devices.

It encourages students who are part of science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) programs to participate and create their own app.

"Participating in the Congressional App Challenge is a great way for students to learn new skills and showcase their potential," Bonamici said in a press release. "As the role of technology grows in Oregon and across the country, students benefit from the opportunity to design and build an app. This challenge gives students that exposure and encourages them to use both halves of their brain to solve problems creatively through STEAM education."

Students must submit their application by Nov. 1 and provide a video demonstration explaining their app and how it works.
