Every December, the Minnesota Computer Club hosts a programming competition for all middle and high school students.
There are 25 puzzles, given out at midnight EST once per day from December 1st - 25th. Our competition ends on December 31st, so there is some extra time to get as many puzzles done as possible. At midnight on December 31st, the scores will be calculated. Our competition is only based on the number of problems completed (stars acquired), not the speed/score unless there is a tie at the end.
You can use any programming language you like. This competition is set up to be language-agnostic.
You may not share your solutions with anyone outside of your group. Again, it is up to the honor of the individual to maintain the integrity of the tournament.
Ties in the number of stars will be settled with AOC score (shortest time to complete puzzle)
All students and teams with at least one star will also be entered for random prizes!
Top three places in each of the following categories (with at least 10 entires) will earn a prize
High school students
Middle school students
High School with the most cumulative stars (sum of all individuals and teams)
Prizes for high school students are as follows.
The top individual will win a $100 cash prize.
Second place will win a $75 cash prize.
Third place will win a $50 cash prize.
The top school will receive an engraving on a perpetual trophy to be displayed at their school.
