Registration Link: Registration has closed

The FIU competition is an on-site, live programming competition for high school students who have programmed in Java, C++, C#, or Python. Students compete in teams of 3, sharing a single desktop computer. Their work is submitted and judged while the competition is in progress. The competition lasts 4 hours, with awards given the same day.

The competition is run by the Academy for CS Education at FIU, directed by Dr. Giri Narasimhan. The competition was held annually since 2005, except during the pandemic. It is free to all teams, but we require a deposit (in the form of a cheque addressed to FIU) to be returned if the team competes.

We will assist schools who may be relatively new to competitive programming by providing an orientation session. See the schedule and Zoom link below:

There will be two divisions: Division I (Standard), and Division 2 (Novice)

A school may send multiple teams, but all teams will need to compete in the same division.

At least one faculty coach from each school must attend the competition.

The first 10 schools will be guaranteed space for the first 3 teams registered before the deadline.

After the registration deadline, teams registered before the deadline will be admitted on a rotating basis, with one team per school during each round.
