Student Programming Contest
Saturday, April 10, 2010 from 2-6pm
Sponsored by Cerner


Send an e-mail to specifying your school, team name(s), and team members by March 22, 2010. Note: Students must be at least 1/2 time students (6 or more hours) in order to compete.

Entry Fee:

There will be a $45 per team entry fee payable at the contest registration desk by cash or check (no credit cards please). The fee covers Saturday’s luncheon, snacks, copying, and other costs of conducting the programming contest.

Team Composition:

There must be exactly 3 students per team. However, each institution is allowed at most one team with 2 students. No more than one graduate student per team is allowed. Team members must be enrolled for at least 6 hours at their institution.


The official contest languages are C, C++, and Java.


Windows XP with Eclipse and Visual Studio .NET. Simple editors (Notepad, Wordpad, Textpad) are also available.

Multiple Teams From Same School:

The goal of the contest is to have participation from as many schools as possible. No “second teams” will be entered unless all schools wanting to participate have sent at least one team. In that case, “second teams” will be accepted in the order of registration. No “third teams” will be accepted until all teams wanting to send a second team have done so. We do not anticipate room for any fourth teams.

Official Rules:

We will be using the ACM ICPC rules.

Please send comments and suggestions to Webmaster.
