UIL Contests in Texas are underway. Schools will compete in numerous Academic Events over the next 2 weeks to qualify for the UIL Regional meet. Then, they can qualify for the UIL State meet which is held at the University of Texas at Austin campus. State Champions will be crowned on May 21st and 22nd.
Students and teachers all over the state prepare for and look forward to this time of year. The contests are great and they provide a chance for students to test their skills against students from all over the state.
Computer Science is a component of the UIL Academic Program. You can find out more about the Computer Science contest by clicking here – UIL Computer Science. Check out my site to download sample UIL Computer Science tests and programming problems.
I would encourage those in Texas to get involved! If you are in another state that has no contests, you should start a Computer Science contest of your own! It is great way to build your program and get more kids involved.
