- Division 1 (D1) is for teams that are very strong algorithmically. The D1 problem set will be difficult. It will be along the lines of a lite version of what you would see at World Finals. Only D1 teams are eligible for slots in the West Division Final.
- Division II (D2) is approachable for teams that have not completed the algorithm sequence at their school and/or have not competed in programming contests before. Almost all problems in D2 can be solved using techniques at the CS1 and CS2 levels. Most teams in this division have a great chance at solving many problems. If a team does well in this division this year, that team should try D1 next year!
