Congressional App Challenge

I am pleased to announce that my office is hosting a 2022 Congressional App Challenge!

The Congressional App Challenge encourages middle and high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. The Challenge highlights the value of computer science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.

The House of Representatives knows how crucial these skills are and wants to encourage students to engage in these fields. By encouraging and recognizing our nation’s young programming talent, Congress hopes to shine a light on the growing importance of these skills.

This competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience. We strongly encourage students of all skill levels to participate, enabling them to learn how to create their own apps. Students are encouraged to register online and submit their apps by Tuesday, November 1st, 2022.

To enter, students must complete the registration process. Once they are registered, CAC will notify our office. Student submissions are directed through the CAC portal that was created during registration.

If you have any questions about the challenge, please contact Mark Elliott in my Monroe District Office at 706-840-3927 or by email at

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
