FAQ

What is the Contest?
KTBYTE is launching a contest that allows more students a fun way to learn computer science. The KTBYTE contest will be open to younger students that typically have few competition options in elementary school, as well as middle and high school students. Students will get to explore CS concepts through puzzles that touch all sorts of applied topics, from gaming, science, social science, the arts, and more.
Winners will be featured in our newsletter and on the leaderboard on the KTBYTE website. In the future we will be offering prizes to students who finish at the top of their level. The more contests you compete in at your level the better your score will be, so make sure to compete in all contests at your level!!

When is the contest?

We plan to run this competition on the first of each month going forward. Each month we will create three problem sets, one for each difficulty level. Each contest will be open for one week for the time being. In the future, when more participants are used to the contest schedule, we may limit participation to a single weekend. You should challenge yourself to finish the problems in a short amount of time!
Students must register to participate.
