SD TECH HOSTS ANNUAL ACM CONTEST
Eight teams from four South Dakota high schools competed in the Association for Computing Machinery ( ACM) contest on Saturday, March 18. Custer High School, Hot Springs High School, Rapid City Central High School and St. Thomas More High School were this year’s attendees.
Hosted by the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T), the contest challenged each team to solve 12 computing problems. Two of the teams solved all 12 problems, so a thirteenth more difficult question was added to break a tie.
The winning team, from Rapid City Central High School, consisted of Randy Foudray, David Grieser and Jacob Oursland. They will each win a scholarship of an undetermined amount to SDSM& T. The second- place team, from Custer High School, consisted of Matt Fischer, Dustin Kirk and Aaron Whiting.
Founded in 1947, ACM is the world’s first educational and scientific computing society. With a worldwide membership of 80,000 in more than 100 countries, ACM functions as a locus for computing professionals and students working in the various fields of Information Technology.
