The American Computer Science League (ACSL) has sponsored computer science
contests since 1978.  The contests are divided into divisions (Senior,
Intermediate, Junior, Classroom and Elementary) to appeal to a wide range of
student experience.  The Senior, Intermediate and Junior Divisions include
computer science topics and coding.  The Classroom and Elementary Divisions
do not require coding. ACSL is offering its 2018-19 contest question/solution set to CSTA teachers
who register for the first time.

On October 22, 2018, Arizona's State Board of Education voted to adopt new K-12 Computer Science Standards. The process to develop new Computer Science Standards began in January 2017. Since that time, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has collected public feedback on existing standards and convened working groups of educators, content experts, community members, and parents to create new standards. Click here to download Arizona's Computer Science Standards.
