Saturday (10th December) Garfield competed in the NWCSTA Programming Competition, and our teams won 1st & 2nd in Advanced as well as 2nd in Novice categories. taking half of the six medals awarded.  We had 26 students compete in our 9 teams and everyone had a great time at the event. The competition was held at UW’s Computer Science building and there were a total of 43 teams from 15 schools from the greater Seattle area.

Besides the competition, the event featured a CS Talk on Robotics, meeting local computer professionals, pizza lunch and socializing with other CS students in the area.  Ms Martin, our former Garfield CS teacher, was one of the coordinators and was happy to see us continue our winning tradition.  Mr Bergquist is very proud of everyone’s outstanding participation, effort and sportsmanship at the competition.  The next competition is in April!
