Twice each academic year, the UW Computer Science department hosts a programming contest for high school students in the Puget Sound area. This contest is sponsored by the Computer Science Teachers Association and is open to novice as well as experienced student programmers.
The winter contest will be held on Saturday, December 1o, on the UW campus. Students work in teams of 1 — 3 people to solve a variety of programming problems. The event is lots of fun, in addition to being a good challenge. Food, prizes, raffles, swag, guest speakers, and a chance to meet lots of other students from other schools as well.
More information is here: CSTA Programming Contest.
I would like to see many Roosevelt HS students participate this year, and we’ll be talking about it, practicing, and organizing in AP CS class this week.
Tell your friends, too. They don’t have to have taken CS!
