Congressional Ideas Market

  • Rayburn HOB Foyer (map)


What's your big idea to change the world?

College to Congress, in partnership with The Purple Aisle, will host the first ever, Congressional Ideas Market! In this fast-paced, hackathon-style event, we will harness the power of our lived experiences to shape the future of public policy. Calling all interns, staffers, and local leaders to help innovate and build a more collaborative, inclusive, and effective Congress!

First, we will learn the fundamentals of design thinking - typically seen in the tech field - to develop innovative solutions to our nation’s toughest challenges. Then, we will develop, discuss, and vote on those ideas in lightning rounds because change shouldn't take forever!

This is designed to be a widely attended event and intended to comply with all House and Senate rules. Refreshments will be provided.

College to Congress is a nonprofit organization that creates pathways for students to intern in Congress who otherwise could not afford to do so. We are empowering the next generation of passionate and diverse young leaders to kick-start their careers in public service. With each intern we support, we move one step closer to creating a Congress that is truly reflective of the people it serves.
