Congressional Youth Cabinet There are only two days left to apply for my Congressional Youth Cabinet! The Congressional Youth Cabinet is a nonpartisan initiative that gives our district’s high school students the opportunity to learn more about Congress and the policymaking process and discuss their ideas about how to solve the most pressing issues facing young Americans. If you know a high school junior or senior who would be a good fit, encourage them to apply here before the September 16 deadline.
Congressional App Challenge Registration for the 2022 Congressional App Challenge is now open! I am encouraging students of all skill levels to participate in this fun and low-barrier way to begin exploring a future in STEM by learning how to create their own apps. Students can register and submit their applications until November 1, 2022. The competition is open to all students who meet the eligibility requirements, regardless of coding experience.

As always, our office is here to help. You can reach us by phone at 610-626-2020 or send me a message through our website.
