The 2018 University of Arkansas High School Programming Contest brings talented students to campus for an exciting problem solving and programming event. Our problems will challenge the competitors to use their problem solving abilities and programming skills in the C, C++, or Java programming languages.
The event will be held at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus on March 10, 2018 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. The registration deadline is February 7, 2018. There is no registration cost to participate! The event includes a continental breakfast as well as a “pizza style” lunch. There will be prizes awarded!
Registration is now closed. Teams are to be made up of 2 to 3 students. In an effort to accommodate as many schools as possible, schools wishing to register more than two teams will require approval based on available space. Additionally, for a team to register, at least one school-authorized coach is required.
