The UMD High School Programming Contest brings talented students from high schools throughout the DC metropolitan area to the campus to participate in a three hour competition. Students competing in teams of four demonstrate their programming skills and problem solving abilities by attempting to solve eight programming problems in Java, using the Eclipse programming environment, on Apple iBooks.
The 2009 Contest took place March 28th, 2009 at the CSIC Building at the University of Maryland, College Park. Teams from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia took part in the contest.
A forum is available for teams to ask/answer questions and offer comments here.
