The Programming Challenge is a special competition category open to students in 7th through 12th grade.

Unlike the other competition categories that require students to present a project that is created before the competition, students in the Programming Challenge are given a series of problems on the day of the competition that they must code solutions for within a two-hour time limit.

 Programming Challenge is the only category that students can register for in addition to completing a project from one of the other fourteen project categories.

Students interested in competing in the Programming Challenge must submit a teacher recommendation form. Those forms will be available <HERE> during the Application Window from October 25th to November 5th.
