Abstract: This article describes the experience of Indonesian Olympiad in Informatics (abbreviated as OKI in Indonesian) in introducing informatics to young generation in Indonesia through a form of competition. Organizing an informatics olympiad in a large developing country requires dealing with a myriad of challenges, such as unbalanced distribution of infrastructure development and poor human resource. In Indonesia, these challenges are dealt by staging a multi-tiered selection, concentrating on developing online training system and creating a strong cooperation with top universities. We analyze briefly how these efforts impact the spread of participation of OKI.
