High School Computer Science Contests

Looking for a way to get kids excited about learning Computer Science?
Take your students to a programming contest.

Why?  They learn teamwork and how to problem solve under pressure.
Also, they get a chance to dominate the planet.  Who doesn’t like winning?

Also, ask your local colleges to see if they host a high school contest.
Many college ACM groups host high school programming contests.

Host your own high school contest.  Why?  It is fun and you will be helping out others in your area.
