About the Challenge

The Lt. Governor's Coding Challenge is a statewide coding competition for Connecticut students. The "Coding for Good" challenge is be open to all students who can enter on their own or as a team through their schools and through informal education partners such as the Girl Scouts, the Y’s, Girls Who Code Clubs and other after school programs.

This Challenge would not be possible without the support of our partners and sponsors.
