Announcing Gosar’s 2020 Congressional App Challenge
Congressman Gosar’s office is excited to announce that his office will be hosting a Congressional App Challenge (CAC), an app competition for students in middle and high school.
It is important that our country develop, and employ, its own skilled citizens in technology fields.
The CAC was created because Congress recognized that STEM and computer-based skills are essential for economic growth and innovation and that the U.S. has been falling behind on these fronts. By some estimates, the U.S. may be short by as many as 1 million programmers by 2020. These are high-paying, high-demand jobs. To maintain American competitiveness, it’s crucial that the United States invests in our youth now and helps them acquire these valuable skills. The CAC encourages students to pursue those skills and recognizes them for their efforts.
