This year's Cornell University High School Programming Contest Warm Up (renamed from the former High School Girls Programming Contest) is scheduled to be a virtual event via Zoom on Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 1 p.m. EST. The total time, including the introduction and instructions, will be approximately three hours.

Though all high students—regardless of identity traits—are welcome to apply, the event is intended to encourage high school girls to participate and succeed in programming contests; that is to say, we encourage participation by high school girls and high school students from other groups underrepresented in technology fields.

Registration is now open, and organizers welcome sharing news of the event with potential student participants. Though registration requires individual completion, teams can be made up of two to three high school students (who are residents of the US or Canada). If a student does not have a team or cannot find other members through  school, we will assign individuals to teams. On the form, there is an option to include a teacher’s name/email. Registration is due by Friday, February 12th, 2021.

Also, please save the date for the April High School Programming Contest to be convened online Saturday, April 17th, 2021.
