We invite you and your HS programming teams (MAX 3 students per team) to attend this programming contest virtually!

While this contest is targeted for high school students, it is OPEN to all! All high school students should be registered through their HS teachers to qualify for prizes. Teachers should use their official school email addresses as well.

Kattis Scoring System:
A. Teams will be ranked according to the number of problems that they solve.
B. In the event of a tie, the teams within the tied group will be ranked according to their Penalty Points, fewest comes highest.

We will use Kattis for semi-automatic judging. There are typically 8-12 problems for each level to solve. It supports tons of languages including C++, Java and Python.
