What exactly does "schoolchildren" mean? I signed up, but then realized I might not be considered a "schoolchild" since I am in university.

Could you put a concurrent contest for the ones that aren't in school anymore? Even if this contest wouldn't give points [like what it's done with div2 rounds that div1 competitors can train] it would be nice to train simultaneously with the schoolchildren

    Both elementary and high school, but not a university student.
    That was meant in the original post; the contests are mostly intended for high school students, I think.
