Programming Contest
Date: 
Saturday, February 22, 2014

Held annually since 1991, over 1000 students, organized into over 300 different teams from 16 different colleges in Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania have competed over the years.

This year, 17 teams from 6 colleges (Denison, Baldwin-Wallace, Muskingum, Ohio Wesleyan, Oberlin, and University of Akron) and one home-school team competed in this 4-hour contest.

“Uberlin”, from Oberlin, won the contest, solving their last problem in the final two minutes of the contest. “Public Static Void Pain”, also from Oberlin, got second place even though they finished all the problems with an hour to spare (they lost out on re-submission penalties). “@_@” (Denison) also got all 6 problems and ended in third place. “Megahurts” (Oberlin) and “DU While” (Denison) both solved five apiece for fourth and fifth place, respectively. All problems were solved.

Congratulations to all students who participated, but especially to Amanda Strominger, Scott Hulver, and Nathan Klein (Uberlin) on a strong showing and an exciting finish.
