High school students from around the world are invited to
participate in the 1997 USA National Championship. This is a timed and proctored
competition that must be held on April 8, 1997.
Students in the United States participate through a local coordinator at
their school. A local coordinator is an adult who typically teaches mathematics
or computer science in high school. It is a simple process to become a local
coordinator. Simply fill out the local coordinator form found under Forms and
submit it via email to the contest director. Of course it could be printed
out and sent via regular mail. However, it is best to have a coordinator who has
an email address and regularly reads their email. A local coordinator will
automatically be put on the hs-computing list which it used to distribute
information about the USACO. Click on Instructions
and read the responsibilities of the local coordinator.
To participate in the National Championship, a student must have
his/her name submitted by their local coordinator.
We need to receive the coordinator form and the list of participating
students by March 15, 1997.
The International Division is provided via the
Internet and will be sent out on the hs-computing list on April 8, 1997. The
International Division does not require a local coordinator and is conducted
under the rules of the Internet competitions.
