Celebrate our students who have advanced 1+ divisions in USACO!
Winning contests requires an enormous amount of skill, and a tad bit of luck. You never know what kind of topics are on the contest, who’s setting the problems (Ben Qi!), or if you’re feeling sick on the day of the contest. Just know that there are 4/year 🙂
Students work exceptionally hard to earn their divisions, and USACO Contests are becoming progressively harder, so keep at it. Don’t worry if you miss the cutoff for a few contests—I, David, failed Bronze and Silver contests 4 times… so it is normal.
For the following list, the level of the Battery Icon represents what month they were promoted. December is Full, and US Open is empty.
