What are Challenges?

Starting October 3rd, 2023, you will be able to access the CoderZ League challenges. The challenges are summative activities similar to missions but on a larger scale. All team members may participate in the challenges; however, unlike missions, only the highest-scoring team member contributes their score to the team. Challenges may be attempted multiple times, and the team's highest score is always the one that contributed to the final ranking.

At the end of the preliminary stage, team scores for each challenge are ranked on a leaderboard. The following point totals are awarded based on the final ranking: 


Multiple teams cannot share a place on the leaderboard, meaning two teams cannot both be placed 2nd, for example. In the event of a tie, the first team to acquire the tied score will be ranked above other teams with the same score.

Here is an example of a scoring situation:

Team A is competing in the Novice division.

The team has 3 students: Student A, Student B and Student C, all of whom completed the Robo Golf challenge. Student A received 300 points for the challenge, student B got 400 points and student C got 500 points. 

On the Robo Golf challenge leaderboard, Team A will have 500 points thanks to student C. 

Team A will appear 3rd on the leaderboard at the end of preliminaries, with 500 points right after Team B with 750 points and Team C with 900 points. Team A will receive 2,500 points for the Robo Golf challenge, Team B will receive 3,500 points and Team C will receive 5,000 points. 


  • Taking part in challenges will earn you a lot of points. Placing high on any of the challenges almost guarantees to move on to the next stage of the competition (Applicable for Pro and Junior teams).
  • We highly recommend that all team members work together to create a solution that will yield the most points for each challenge. When many ideas arise, we suggest dividing the team and trying them all, to check which of the solutions achieves the highest score.

Good luck!
