Let more students know about it

International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) is the most prestigious international contest in Computer Science for school students, with 85+ countries participating each year. The primary goal of IOI is to stimulate interest in algorithms and informatics (computing science) among young students. To participate, Indian school students need to register for the Indian Computing Olympiad, which is the national exam conducted for the selection of four students who will go on to represent India at the IOI 2021 at Singapore in June 2021.

Only a handful of students are aware of this. From which last year only 1000+ students registered for the ICO exam but this year, we hope to triple that number. Considering the crores of eligible students, we think this is achievable. But, we cannot do this on our own; we need your help to make this possible.

So if you believe that Indian programmers can do well on the global stage but are unable to do so due to lack of awareness, this will be the first step towards winning a gold medal at the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI). We encourage school students, teachers, college students, professionals, parents and everyone else to join us. Your help is needed!
