“New apps change the world we live in every single day,” Rep. Grijalva said. “There is tremendous opportunity for anyone able to conceive, develop and launch their own apps, and we must make sure that opportunity is available to all students. The Congressional App Challenge is a great chance for students to gain those skills, and to ensure the cutting edge fields of tomorrow reflect the diversity of the American people. I look forward to all of the great entries from students in the 3rd Congressional District!”
