CerealCodes is excited to announce our Summer 2022 Programming Contest!
This contest will be held on August 13-14th on Codeforces (with 4 different start times).
The competition has three divisions: Novice (USACO Bronze-Silver or Div 3), Intermediate (USACO Silver-Gold or Div 2), and Advanced (USACO Gold-Platinum or Div 1).
You can form teams of up to 3 members, and compete to solve ~6 high quality (cereal themed!) problems within 3 hours.
Over $500 in cash (possibly more) will be given out (in the form of Amazon gift cards), as well as other prizes like merchandise and raffle awards!!! Note: only pre-college teams are eligible for cash awards.
Join our Discord server for more info and access to faster communication about our competition.

A huge shout out to BucketPotato for helping review and prepare our problems on Polygon.
A huge thanks to our entire CerealCodes team.
We hope to see you there!
We have decided to relax restrictions on joining the sample contest, so you do not need to solve a problem in the sample contest to be eligible for prizes.
Also, now all you need to do to join the contest is make an account on the CerealCodes website with your team name and team member's names. You can also just join the contest without the above and participate unofficially.
Please join the Codeforces group with your desired contest start time ASAP.

We hope you enjoy the problems!
With the contest date approaching soon, we would like to update you with more information about the contest logistics, as some details may be unclear at the moment.
Please take a look at https://tinyurl.com/CCLogisticsDoc. This contains all the information you will need to know about our contest, including the sample contest we are hosting, and how to participate in the contest on Codeforces.
We will be updating registration shortly to allow you to securely enter the Codeforces group with your appropriate start time. Under registration, we require you to provide each team member's name, Codeforces handle, and your designated start time. You MUST register your account by August 12th at 9:00 PM EST with each component of registration finalized. You may not switch your start time or update your profile after that hard deadline.
We will also be hosting an opening ceremony on August 12 at 7:00 PM EST via Zoom, where we will be describing the contest logistics in further detail with prizes, raffles, and contest rules described. We will also have our guest speaker Charlie Guo from XCamp give a five-minute talk during our opening ceremony.
Please update your profiles, so that we can manually accept you to the CF contest groups based on your selected start time. This is ABSOLUTELY necessary to complete if you want to compete in the contest.
Additionally, please join the sample contest group, since you will only be eligible for prizes and raffles if you submit an accepted solution in both the sample contest and the actual contest. No worries, the sample contest is super easy to do (just solve A+B if you don't have time to do the other problems).
The sample contest group can be found here.
We are really excited to welcome you to our first-ever contest, and we hope that you have fun!
Unfortunately, there was a bug for some people which made them not be able to save their profile information on the website. This problem has been resolved and it should be working now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Make sure to add your team member information, start time, etc on your website profile by logging in here.
See you soon!
