The first contest of the 2022-2023 USACO season will be running from December 16th to December 19th this weekend. Good luck to everyone! Please wait until the contest is over for everyone before discussing anything contest-related (including but not limited to your scores or anything about the problems).
For those unfamiliar with the USACO contest format, please refer to the contest instructions and rules. We provide a short FAQ but folks should read all the rules carefully.
I have a question about the contest. Where do I ask it?
Email the contest director via the instructions above. Do not post anything publicly about the questions (including but not limited to your scores, how you felt about the problems, any content of the problems, etc) until after the contest is over for everyone. Do not DM me or anyone else affiliated with USACO, only the contest director can assist you. The contest director does not monitor Codeforces, this blog post is merely a courtesy to inform other people of the contest.
When can I enter the contest?
If I submit multiple programs, which one gets evaluated?
Only the last submission will be evaluated for official scoring purposes.
Can I use prewritten code / templates?
Am I allowed to use outside resources during the contest?
You may only refer to language documentation.
Why didn't I get an email from USACO when I registered my account?
Follow the directions on the USACO website regarding Gmail Delivery Issues to contact the contest director.
Can I solve problems in Rust?
No, the only languages supported are C, C++, Java, and Python. Consult the instructions for language-specific technical details.
Will Rust support be added?
Probably not. Petition IOI to add Rust support first.
