Getting Elementary/Middle Students Started and Certified

Hello everyone! I am a teacher for elementary/middle school students, and I have two brief questions:

  1. Does Codechef offer certificates they can hold onto?

  2. Any general suggestions on getting them started? (So far I plan to start them off with practice questions before trying D4 contests and progressing to higher divisions)

Thank you in advance for any feedback!

  1. Ratings and badges for activity and achievements on the platform. No other certifications.
  2. Assuming the students are just starting their journey - Learn Programming | Python | CodeChef - this would be the right place to start. We will soon bring in C++ and Java.
    Post that - D-4 contests should be beneficial.
