    Nice question, the bigger question is that do they give money to buy tickets and travel arrangement or do they do all the arrangements themselves. Curious to know that ..

    2nd as you said. If a male gets into tp 150, is he also eligible for prizes???

    I think they should give money for tickets and arrangements and allow winners to book their tickets and look for travel arrangements becasue a few people may have some acquaintances so they don't need a hotel booking they just need flight ticket.

    What you all think... ANy suggestions and experiences are higlhy appreciable..

Actually just for the record i think that the time Google Code Jam I/O for Women 2020 starts is really bad for users that also have to participate in today's codeforces round because Google Code Jam I/O for Women 2020 starts just 1 hour after today's codeforces round(Codeforces Round #620 (Div. 2)) starts.So i am just gonna solve really fast the first 1-3 problems on codeforces on the contest and then just participate for rest of hour in Google Code Jam I/O for Women 2020.

Yes,sorry man i made a mistake.

So i am gonna hopefully be in time for both contests.

But still there is a contest at hackerearth today at 6 o'clock so i am gonna have to choose between hackerearth and google code jam.

So when you think you will be on time for a contest and you will catch both contests another contests shows up and ruins your plans.

Although i am not from google i think you can understand from it's name Google Code Jam to I/O for Women 2020 it is probably for women(i mean the prizes)but if you read the rules,it doesn't say something like women are only eligible for prizes.Maybe i missed something but i don't think so.

Here is link to rules: https://codingcompetitions.withgoogle.com/codejamio/rulesandterms
