As an informatics student you have the opportunity to participate in a number of competitions. Some of these are listed below.

Contests are a smart way of improving your programming skills. Prior to contests, workshops with supervision by senior students are often offered. Participation in such contests does not require more knowledge than what you acquire during your first year of study on the programme.
