DPC/H — Dalhousie Programming Contest
for High-School and Junior-High Students

Dalhousie Programming Contest for High-school and Junior-high students (DPC/H) is designed to provide a computer programming challenge for high-school and junior high-school students. The contest is open to students of younger age as well. In addition to be a contest for students who already learned programming in class or independently, it is an educational contest, aimed at helping any interested students to learn programming through a sequence of exercises of increasing difficulty.

There is no cost to participate.

The contest consists of two phases. In the first phase, some practice problems are posted on-line and the students submit solutions electronically. The solutions are judged, and the results sent to the participants. The second phase is an on-site competition, held at the Dalhousie University.

For DPC/H 2017 the on-site competition will be held on Saturday, Apr 22, 2017. We hope to accommodate all registered students, but if there are more interested students than the labs capacity, the participants will be selected based on the performance in the first phase.


We will announce the prizes before the on-site competition.
