House Administration to Mark Up Resolution Establishing Rules for House Academic Competition

Nov 19, 2013

WASHINGTON – Committee on House Administration Chairman Candice Miller, R-Mich., announced that the Committee will hold a markup on a Committee resolution establishing regulations for the House Academic Competition November 20, 2013, at 11:30 a.m. in 1310 Longworth House Office Building.

The markup will be webcast online here.

The Committee will hold its hearing on military and overseas voting in 2012 at the conclusion of the markup.

Background

In February 2013, the House adopted the Academic Competition Resolution of 2013 (H. Res. 77), a bipartisan resolution sponsored by Chairman Miller establishing an academic competition to promote innovation among students from across the country in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Modeled after the Congressional Art Competition, it will allow Members to host an annual STEM contest for students in their congressional district.  If adopted, the Committee resolution to be considered Thursday will establish regulations for the contest, including rules on conduct, use of resources, and contestants.
