There is no requirement, but the contest is designed for participants with basic programming knowledge (control flow, loops, etc.). If you are not sure, you can try some sample problems here and look at past contests here.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and the contest will be run on a CMU computing environment so laptops are not needed. Participants are permitted and may want to bring paper copies of APIs/libraries.
Schools will be registered on a first come first serve basis. Additional teams may be taken if space permits, again on a first come first serve basis.
Anyone in grades 9-12 can compete. Participants must register through their teacher/coach.
After the contest, participants may ask to receive their contest solutions over email.
Our judging software accepts C, C++, Java, and Python.
The contest is free for everyone. Only transportation costs must be covered by the participants.
