We’re excited to announce that the 2023 High School Programming Contest will be held Saturday, April 1, 2023 at 11:30am EST. Our contest is open to students who live or attend school in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, or Pennsylvania. The contest will be held in person on Cornell’s Ithaca and NYC Cornell Tech campuses. We can’t wait to see you on campus!

Students will compete in teams of 3. The Cornell HS Programming Contest generally includes 6-7 problems of varying difficulty (easy to very challenging) to be solved in 3 hours. Competitors will sharpen not only their computer science problem solving skills, but their strategy and teamwork as well. Students may compete using Python, Java, C, or C++.
