Computer Science Programming Competition for High School Students
The health and safety of the CSNJ community is a top priority for our chapter. We regret to announce that the Fifth Annual CSTASNJ Programing competition, hosted by CSTASNJ and Stockton University, is indefinitely postponed. We understand how disappointing this will be to your competing students and did not make this decision lightly. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and assure you that your team will still retain their spot when we are ready to proceed with the competition. We look forward to when we are able to reschedule and will initiate contact when we are ready to do so.
