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. We are currently searching for funding for this contest season and would love to have you as a sponsor. Your company will be featured on our website, mailing lists, and even contest questions! In addition, your representatives will be invited to attend the on-site finals in Toronto to distribute swag and speak with contestants about products, services, and recruitment opportunities. We expect at least a hundred unique participants between the online rounds and on-site finals in May. Additionally, if you have any products that you’d like to offer, we’d love to add them on top of our cash prizes. The following table outlines the packages we offer in return for your support.
Note: donations are currently not tax deductible. Given enough demand, we may look into setting up a non-profit LLC.
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.
After you donate, we will get back to you within 3-5 business days with details relating to your sponsorship.
