Six MCS students went to Carlton College on Saturday November 8 to participate in the annual ACM Programming Contest. The contest originally started at Texas A & M in 1970. It spread through North America and has branches and chapters throughout the world. “The contest fosters creativity, teamwork, and innovation in building new software programs, and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.”

The participating students, Hayden Goldstien,  Nate Jenson, Sam Suek, Andrew Haisting, Tucker Saude, and Kenlong Tran  represented Gustavus very well. The two Gustavus teams placed 4th and 11th out of 17 total at the Carleton site and 43rd and 156th out of 290 regionally.A listing of all the scores from the region can be found at  http://cse.unl.edu/~upe/contest/
