Every year, Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) hosts a student programming contest. The IDT Programming Contest is an invitational competition for high school students in the Washington, DC metropolitan area who are interested in industry-level problem solving and current trends in technology. The contest is held in the spring in Arlington, VA. The goal of the competition is to engage students with real problems surrounding automated software testing, other automated technologies, and industry-related challenges. Winning team members earn prizes and their high schools receive cash donations.
