USA Computing Olympiad Announces 2011-2012 Season
The USACO is a national program that promotes excellence in computational problem-solving at the high-school level through on-line training materials and programming contests. This season, we plan to offer six on-line programming contests:
Nov 11-14: November Contest Dec 9-12: December Contest Jan 6-9: January Contest Feb 3-6: February Contest Mar 2-5: March Contest April: US Open (a proctored exam that serves as our "national championship")
Contests are free, open to all students, and available in three levels of difficulty: bronze (novice), silver (intermediate), and gold (advanced). Our website (http://www.usaco.org) offers hundreds of hours of free on-line training materials for students and teachers seeking additional resources to help improve their algorithmic coding skills.
The very best students nationwide who excel in our contests will be invited to attend the USACO summer training camp in early June, where they will receive advanced instruction and the opportunity to compete for membership in the 4-person team representing the USA at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the most prestigious international computing competition at the high-school level, held in 2012 in Milan, Italy.
