    Welcome to the November 2023 Junior and Senior Coding Contests. The tests are up and running. We hope you like them. Because the coding contests are much younger than our math contests there is surely room for improvements or clarifying misunderstandings. Let us know what you think on [email protected].

    Hope everyone is having a great summer! We are holding the first contest of the 2023-24 Caribou Cup Year on August 2nd - Auguest 3rd [EST]. There will be a junior and senior contest. Additional Practice Sample Junior and Senior Contests have been released for all students to try out. Both contests will require 1 non-math credit, which can be purchased from the caribou shop. Students have the option of participating in both contests with the purchase of 2 non-math credits. Both Junior and Senior Contests will have a 3 hour time limit! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] Good luck on the upcoming contest!
    Interface Update 2023-04-25 11:11:13
    Our coding interface has been updated with the problem descriptions, code editor, and results all in one! We hope this makes your contest experience better and please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further feedback. Additionally, our next contest will be held during the summer, but you will need to purchase non-math credits at our online shop to participate.
    March Contest Completion 2023-03-30 16:23:45
    We would like to thank everyone for participating in the first Caribou Coding Contest. There were over 750 participants and we received a lot of valuable feedback and valid criticisms. We promise to use the feedback to improve the experience of students and teachers in future contests and apologize to those who experienced any issues or confusion. We look forward to seeing your submissions at the next coding contest.
    Sample Contest Error 2023-03-20 14:52:59
    It has been pointed out to us that in the Sample Practice Contest, the solution for Question 2: "Basic Math" is incorrect and does not use the formula for the volume of a sphere given in the question. The solution and test cases have now been updated to use the formula. Previous answers will not be remarked as the concept of the question remains the same.

We hope to see you participating and good luck!
