MANCHESTER, NH – Congressman Frank Guinta (NH01) today announced his First Annual Congressional App Challenge for high school students in New Hampshire’s First District. The contest is “open to any high school student with a great idea the public will love,” said Rep. Guinta, Manchester’s former two-term mayor.“The object is to inspire greatness in our next generation of science and business leaders, many of whom live right here in the Granite State.”

 

 

 

   “We want to get the creative juices flowing. There’s no better way than a friendly competition to make that happen,” added Rep. Guinta. The contest to find the Granite State’s next successful tech entrepreneur runs through January 15, 2015,  and culminates with a trip to Washington, D.C., for the winner, to be chosen by a panel of local judges.
