High School Contest
We were unable to host in-person events in Fall 2020, but we look forward to resuming our annual events in Fall 2021.
Friday, Nov. 1st 2019 (8am-2pm)
The eFactory | Springfield, Missouri
Your High School students are invited to compete in our free ICPC-inspired programming competition. Prepare your students for future collegiate ACM-ICPC contests. The top 3 teams are recognized with trophies for their schools.
Not quite ready to compete? Choose the "Workshop" option when you register your team to attend training during the contest. Our mentors will work with teachers and students to help prepare your school for next year!
We begin the Hack 4 Good weekend with a contest designed for area High School students. Teams of 1-3 students solve 10-12 problems of varying difficulty and upload solutions to our automated live scoring system at this ICPC-inspired event. Our contest judges review results and present final results/awards during lunch.

After the competition ends, we publish solutions to each contest problem in languages most teams used the prior year, so students can practice for next year.
If you teach another language such as C#, please Contact Us with details! We may consider allowing additional languages and preparing solutions for sample problems in the team packet.

Teams are expected to review Team Packet and be able to complete sample problems on their computer before they arrive.
