posted by: Mr. Bergquist 28 April 2013 No Comment

Two of our five teams placed 1st and 2nd in the Puget Sound CSTA Programming Contest this past Saturday (April 27th) held at Amazon.com.  William Ballinger assisted by a friend from Nova High School took 2nd Place* in Advanced and Rebecca Wong, Ryan Miller & Franklin Sussman won 1st place in Novice competition.  Please congratulate them when you see them next – they did an outstanding job as did all our Garfield programmers.

There were a total of 43 teams and 100 students at the competition. (All Contest results here).  PSCSTA is also offering two $500 scholarships for students who have participated in at least one of PSCSTA’s computing events and want to go beyond your current understanding of computing; full details & application linked  here (deadline May 24th).

*Note: 1st Place finished just 1 minute ahead of them.
