GREENDALE, WI – Today, Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) announced the 2022 Congressional App Challenge Winners. Greendale High School students Cole Bucek, Evie Skibicki, and Riess Steinman have been selected as the winning team of the First District Congressional App Challenge. The award was announced in a surprise ceremony at Greendale High School with the students’ parents and faculty. Following the event, Steil released the following statement congratulating the students.

“Congratulations Cole, Evie, and Riess on creating your app, Brain Food. It was great to announce the 2022 App Challenge winner at Greendale High School, for the second year in a row, and to learn more about their app. Creating an app takes time, skill, patience, and planning. The App Challenge is a great way to promote STEM education and teach students how to be innovative.”

The Congressional App Challenge is a competition aimed at encouraging middle and high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. Started in 2013, the Challenge is intended to highlight 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 students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience.
