HCDSB Students Compete in Annual ECOO Computer Programming Contest

Each year, the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario (ECOO) sponsors a computer programming contest for any school board across the province of Ontario that wishes to participate. The contest involves teams of 4 students who are challenged to solve 4 programming problems in 3 hours, using one computer. The teams have the ability to use any programming language they wish to choose.

This year`s contest was held at Christ the King Catholic Secondary School on March 25th, 2019. Teams from across the Halton Catholic Board competed for a chance to represent the Board at the regional level contest to be held in April at York University.
