About the competition
Pix Programming Challenge is an international programming competition for children and youth. It is fully carried out via the PixBlocks application. The competition is organized in Nigeria, India and 5 European countries.
Both participation in the competition and the application are completely free!
Contest participants must solve programming tasks. Tasks are adapted to different age groups. For the youngest – tasks in the field of block-based programming, and for older participants – tasks in the field of text programming in Python language.
Anyone who is enrolled in primary or secondary school can take part in the competition.
The competition consists of three stages: Eliminations, Semi-Finals and Finals.
The aim of the competition is to encourage students to learn programming and to popularise the study of it at schools.
