The Woburn Challenge is funded by alumni of the Woburn Collegiate Programming Enrichment Group (WCIPEG) who value the impact that the organization had on their lives. We wish to encourage the next generation of blossoming programmers in Canada. If you would like to donate to our cause, please use the button below - we really appreciate your help!
This event is one of Canada's oldest high school computer science enrichment opportunities, even predating the Canadian Computing Competition in the mid 1990s! In the past few years, a reboot of the Woburn Challenge has garnered attention from hundreds of talented students nationwide. This year's contest consists of four online rounds starting in January, and an on-site invitational finals held at the University of Toronto. Historically, our contest draws an enormous amount of raw technological talent from all across Canada, including handfuls of Canadian Computing Olympiad gold medalists and the entirety of the 2017 Canadian IOI team, and many other students with national and international distinctions. These talented participants are often in search of work opportunities, and many believe that our event is the perfect place to network and exchange ideas.
In the past few years, we've awarded students with thousands of dollars in cash prizes. If you'd like to donate to our cause, please use the button below -- we really appreciate it! We expect at least a hundred unique participants between the online rounds and on-site finals in May. 100% of all donations will go toward prizes for students, the costs of holding our in-person finals contest, and the (relatively low) costs of hosting our website, domain name, etc.
We truly believe that contests like the Woburn Challenge are essential in cultivating a passion for technology in the Canadian secondary school community. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Donations are currently not tax deductible. However, due to popular demand, we are currently working towards setting up a non-profit LLC by the next contest year.
