Upcoming PSCSTA Programming Contest

General Information

Middle & High School students will solve programming problems in teams of 1-3 people with 1 computer using any programming language(s). Teams will compete in their division and the top three teams in each division will be awarded with medals and recognition. All participating students will also have a chance to participate in a raffle for additional prizes.

The Spring 2016 contest will be held at the Roosevelt High School Commons in Seattle. Registration will open up at 3pm on Wednesday March 23 and will close at 11:00 pm on Wednesday March 30th.
