Basic Rules

This is a team-based high school programming competition. Each team can include a maximum of three members. We do have a limit on the total number of participants being 25.

Each team will work on a set of ten programming problems during the 3-hour time period. The team that solves the most amount of problems will win the contest, and time needed to solve will be a tiebreaker.

The grading system for the competition will be Kattis. Feel free to practice and get used to the platform. Some sample problems:

If you're unfamiliar with the Kattis system, here's a good place to start.

You can use any language supported by the grading system (C, C++, Python2, Python3, Java, and more). Please bring your own computer (one per team) and be sure to set up what you need for programming.

Try out this optional practice round to get a taste of what kind of problems could be in the contest.
