Abstract: In Germany, the preconditions for running a successful Computer Science contest for secondary school students are not perfect. However, many contests that are related to the area of Computer Science are run by as many different organizations. The Federal Contest in Computer Science (German: Bundeswettbewerb Informatik, short: BWINF), a task-based contest with two homework rounds and a symposium-style final round, is the most important, nation-wide contest in the field. BWINF office is also responsible for Germany's IOI team selection and participation. In addition, in recent years the office has been running several other projects to popularize Computer Science and promote talents in this field.
