Why CSSC?

We are a student-led organization committed to provide a diverse and unique learning experience to junior high students in a setting that emphasizes both individuality and teamwork.

FAQ

Q: I cannot find any teammates, or only have one teammate for a team of 2. Can I still register?

A: Yes, you can still register, and we will try to match you up with other students with the same problem. However, if we cannot arrange for you to have a team of three, you will be ineligible for participation in the final team round. Thus, we recommend that you try your best to find a team of three.

Q: Does everyone on my team have to be from the same school?

A: No, a team can be composed of teammates from different schools. However, you will be ineligible to receive the team trophy, as it should be displayed at a school represented by a team completely from that school.

Q: Does everyone on my team have to be in the same grade?

A: No, teams can be composed of various grades without being placed at any disadvantage.

Q: I have already registered, but a teammate had to drop out. What should I do?

A: Please send us an email regarding who dropped out, as well as the name, school, grade, and email of a replacing teammate if you are able to find one.
