Coding Contests and other Python resources


I have been looking at some of the various contest problems.  Every year HP sponsors a contest called HP CodeWars and looking through some of the problems, the kids should be able to solve some (with minor modifications of the problems) today.  I have printed out a handful which we can give to the kids that are further ahead to keep them engaged.  We can also integrate them into future lessons as well:
Here are some other contest problems that we can use or get ideas from:
American Computer Science League:
Cornell University High School Programming Contest:
USA Computing Olympiad:
