Each team consists of 1-3 members. A mixture of medium-difficulty and advanced problems. The most advanced problems may require some familiarity with graph searching, backtracking, geometry, elementary combinatorics, and sorting with comparators. As many as 16 teams will be able to compete. You may pre-register more than two teams, but each school is only guaranteed a spot for two teams. After the registration deadline, unused team slots will be awarded in a way that will allow as many schools as possible to bring a 3rd team. If additional space is still available after that, we will allow schools to bring a 4th team.

In order to guarantee a spot for your students, your registration must be completed by the registration deadline.

Individual medals will be awarded members of the first, second, and third place teams. Each student attending the event will be given a T-shirt and lunch. Students and coaches are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event. Door prizes are likely.
