Liberty Students Take Top Honors at PLU High School Programming Contest
22 February, 2017
Congratulations to Liberty High School’s Duncan Magendanz, Jill Polsin, and Ian Weiss on winning the Advanced Division of the Pacific Lutheran University High School Programming Contest! The programming contest, which lasts three hours, brings together students from high schools all over Washington State. Teams try to solve several computer programming problems using various programming languages, and the more problems a team solves the higher the team’s final standing in the competition. In the event of a tie the tie is broken according to the amount of time each team needed to solve their problems.
Magendanz, Polsin, and Weiss solved their final problem at the 177 minute mark, just three minutes before the end of the contest, which ultimately moved them from 2nd place to 1st place. Congratulations again on a thrilling win!
