Any Ontario School may participate for free in the ECOO Boardwide Programming Contest. Teachers who are prepared to convene a contest for their school board during March 20 - March 27, 2019 may request a copy of the contest: Simply e-mail John Ketelaars, stating your name, email, school board and the school or board office where you work. We will email you the contest during the second week of March, 2018.
See last year's package: ECOO Round 1 Contest 2018

The contest material will be in PDF form and will follow the format of the Regional and Final contests. Convenors are free to use the material as they see fit. However, to give other school boards a reasonably expectation of secrecy, please respect the time constraint, and administer the contest between Wed Mar 20 and Wed Mar 27.

Teachers who have teams that wish to participate in the Boardwide Programming contest should contact their Board convenor. The convenors listed convened the 2017 Boardwide Programming contest. Starting in January 2018 we will ask these teachers if they wish to serve again as convenors.
