Criteria for Seletion

We will use all contest results and many problem submissions as evaluation criteria for choosing attendees at the USACO training camp. This means that candidates who show long-term strength (and/or growth) are more likely to be chosen for camp than those who have one lucky contest.

A student must participate in the National Championship to be eligible to be chosen for the training camp.
