This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

ACSL organizes computer science contests and computer programming contests for elementary, junior, and senior high school students.

Each year of the contest, ACSL will send each team advisor an ACSL Category Description Booklet. The booklet contains the rules for each category and some sample problems and solutions. Team advisors will use the booklet and other sample problems to prepare students for the short answer test. Prior to each contest, ACSL will send the team advisor an e-mail file that contains the short answer questions, the programming problem and solutions for both. The team advisor will make copies of the contest questions. Note that for one registration fee every student at a school may take the tests. However, if a school registers for more than one division, a student may only take one of the tests.

Students must take the ACSL exam to be scored on the questions. 4 contest exams will be provided to students. The top scoring students from all contests will be invited  to the "all star competition."

1. A students score is the sum of his/her scores on the short answer test and the programming problem. A maximum score for any one student is 10 points ( 5 + 5). 2. The team score is the sum of the best 3 or 5 student scores for that contest. 3. The advisor will complete the ACSL Scoresheet and submit it by e-mail to ACSL. If a student score of 10 is reported, the advisor must also attach the programming file for that student.
