About USACO eligiblity

Hey everyone!

I am from Australia but I go to an American online school (https://www.depts.ttu.edu/k12/). Does that mean I can take part in the USACO? I was reading about William Lin on Codeforces and he said that he was from Taiwan but he was attending an American school in Taiwan. I just competed my first AIO (Australian Informatics Olympiad) yesterday and I came up with this interesting question!

Thanks in advance!



@thecodingwizard Do you have any idea? Thanks!

You can always take part in USACO, regardless of where you are from. If you’re asking whether you can qualify for the USACO training camp / USA IOI team, I’m not sure (you should probably email Professor Dean). My best guess is you’ll be eligible for both iff you’re a US citizen :slight_smile:

Thanks @thecodingwizard! Well, I still have a long way to go in competitive programming. How is it possible to contact Professor Dean by any chance?

Thanks in advance.
