Host a Contest! Contest Rules Registration Contest Details Results Links
University of Oregon Site 2008 Welcome to the Pacific NW Region Programming Contest! The Pacific NW Region is comprised of the following areas: Alaska, Hawaii, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, northern/central California and western Nevada. Because of the large geographic area of the region, the contest is held simultaneously at multiple sites: Northern California, Northwest (Oregon), Northeast (E. WA and Idaho), Puget Sound (Western Washington), Canada, and Hawaii.

The 2014 contest will be held on Saturday, October 25

Registration will open in the first part of September once sponsorship has been obtained which will then establish the registration cost per team.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  In the future, if you are interested and capable of hosting, please contact the regional director at: or  Costs of the contest (food, t-shirts, balloons, etc.) are covered by the PacNW region.  As a host school your teams participate for free.


Final Results

  • November 3 is the contest date for the 2012 contest

  • Site update still in progress...

  • On contest day, registration will begin at 9am PST (just as with 2011), not 8am as in previous years to accommodate the 3 hour time difference the Hawaii site faces.

  • Registration will close on Wednesday, October 31.  Any teams registering after October 26 are not guaranteed t-shirts and a spot in the contest (if the site they wish to participate at is full, they cannot compete).

  • You have the ability to register up to 5 teams for the contest, provided your site has room to accommodate them.  Each school has the opportunity to register 3 teams (room permitting at site), guaranteed, through Friday, October 26.  After this point, schools that want to register a 4th and/or 5th team will officially be allowed to do so (room permitting at site).

  • For problems that require input, that input will come from stdin.  In previous years input was read from a file.  For more details, visit this link:

  • Each problem will have a time limit specific to that problem.  The time limit will be specified as part of each problem statement.  In past years all problems had a default time limit of 120 seconds.  For more details, visit this link:

  • Judge responses are the same as last year to attempt to provide better feedback on team submissions.  For more details, please visit this link:

  • Contest start time has been moved back one hour relative to previous years.  This is to accommodate the Hawaii site so they do not have to register at 5am (now they can register at 6am :-).  Thus registration for mainland sites begins at 9am and the actual contest will start somewhere around 1pm.  For more details, please visit this link:
