About this event

This contest will provide an excellent opportunity for students across Iowa to showcase their talents and to compete at a high level. Each team can have up to three students and share one computer.

Teams compete to solve ten or more problems of varying difficulty in four hours, with the winning team solving the most problems in the least amount of time. This contest is modeled after the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) and will be held at multiple sites, including Iowa State University. We will provide practice materials for teams.

Besides each team member competing, each team must have an adult register and accompany them to the event. Please let us know if you cannot have an adult accompany your team.
