The 2024 Harker Programming Invitational will be held on March 9th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 


Our annual contest challenges students with USACO-like problems, which can test students on algorithmic knowledge while also preparing them for the Stanford ProCo Contest ( Teams of up to 3 students compete in a contest to score as many points as possible by solving several problems and submitting the answers online. Prizes are awarded! The competition is 2 hours long. It consists of two divisions, Novice and Advanced. Problems of each division are similar to those of the Stanford ProCo Contest.

In addition to the competition itself, we host a panel with leaders from industry and academia as well as industry booths. This year, our theme will be the intersection of CS and transportation!
