The Charles Sturt University has partnered with the Riverina Anglican College to organised a coding tournament so that students in the grades seven to ten can show off their skills.

In a statement, the CSU said the Riverina Inter-School Coding Championship would provide an opportunity for the region's best coders to get up to speed with the very latest in coding and show off their skills on behalf of their schools.

Beginners can also participate with entrants gaining access to a five-week online course which will introduce them to coding.

After the course, a competition between different levels of coders — beginners to advanced — will be held and prizes will be awarded to winners plus a trophy for their school.

CSU AgriTech Incubator project officer Siobhain Howard said the course and competition provided an excellent chance for regional high school students to develop their knowledge and skills.

"This is a unique opportunity for students to not only show the region what they can do, but also to gain access to a great resource that would give them a solid introduction to the world of coding," she said.

"Often, these opportunities are limited when it comes students in the regions, and with coding set to be a high-demand skill for the workforce of the future, CSU is absolutely thrilled to be able to offer this."

Riverina Anglican College STEM teacher Isaac Mannion said the competition would play an important role in developing the region's capabilities in STEM-related disciplines.

"The course and competition aim to engage students, challenging them to think creatively to solve problems," he said.

"Coding will be a key skill for future generations and we are looking forward to engaging with students."
