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 several programming problems in Java, using the Eclipse programming environment, on Apple iBooks.
The 2012 Contest took place April 21st, 2012 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.
