The AcadNet competition was 1st organized in 2008. There are two sections: Computers and Networking. Each section has two age groups represented by the grades the students are in. Thus, grades 9-10 and 11-12 are separated in two subsections, for each section. The contest has a theoretical part, in the form of a multiple choice quiz with one or more correct answers and/or a practical challange on virtual machines or simulators.
