Second Annual Mines High School Programming Competition
Last spring, Mines hosted a programming competition for high school
students modelled after the ICPC competition. We are doing it again
this year, and need people to write problems! (Mines students write
all of the problems for these competitions.)
We need everything from super easy ones to medium difficulty
problems (think about what you could have solved as a high school
student). If you are at all interested in writing a problem, or even
just have a problem idea, please come speak with me. I'd be happy to
help you get it in the correct format for the competition.
See you tomorrow!
