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 MacBooks.
The 2008 Contest took place Saturday, March 8, at the CSIC Building at the University of Maryland, College Park. 39 teams from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia competed in the contest.
