It’s that time of year again — the Hacker Cup team is excited to announce the schedule for our 2020 season, kicking off on July 24th!

To compete, you can register here at any time between now and the end of the qualification round on July 27th.

This year, we will host the final round virtually rather than in-person at a Facebook office, given the current global situation. The finals will take place towards the end of 2020, and details regarding the schedule and live stream will be announced later on.

We’ll also have some exciting news to share about this year’s season… but not quite yet. Stay tuned for a bigger announcement in early July!

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you on the qualification round’s scoreboard!

    In those two rounds, submission times will affect scoreboard ranks but will not affect whether you to advance to the next round (which will only be based on how many points you score, as in previous years). Also as in the past, you'll only have one 6-minute window to submit to each problem upon downloading its input, with your last submission to each problem scoring 0 points if incorrect.

Glad that this is happening, even if the announcement is a bit sudden. Maybe update the Facebook page for Hackercup?

    Facebook page for Hackercup is anyway just a place for random dudes looking for a hacker in the comments to hack some email or smth :)

Hello. Last year I made top 500 in round 2, should I have received any email regarding the prize distribution? I didn't receive any email.

If I should have, is there someone I can contact about this?

I don't know what website to log in to participate in this contest. Is this held in Codeforces, or other Facebook platforms?

Do you have to be of a certain age or is this open to all high schoolers?

    I believe it is open to everyone, even those not in high school. (There might be some requirements if you make it to the finals though, but I think that’s a “deal with it if you get there” sort of problem)

      This sounds like a stupid question, but so does that mean an 8-year-old and an 80-year-old could do it?

        Yes, I believe so. The 8 year old might have logistic issues with traveling to the finals if they qualify (and I'm not exactly sure, but you might have to be like 14 or something to make a facebook account).

        However it seems unlikely that someone under 15 places in the very top of round 3, so for all intents and purposes, it seems like it is as open to everyone as a codeforces round is.

        (I don't speak for the FHC team, and this is just my understanding of it which may be wrong)
