MARQUETTE – Northern Michigan University will hold its 6th annual programming contest from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 19, in Jamrich Hall. The competition is organized by the NMU student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery.   

            Teams of three members will be assigned a list of seven problems to solve over a five-hour period.  The team that solves the most problems correctly wins.  If there is a tie, the team that solved the problems in the shortest time will be declared the winner.

            Those who don’t have a team of three upon signup will be paired with other single participants.  Lunch and dinner will be provided, and each participant will receive a free t-shirt. 

A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board in room 1207 of the New Science Facility.  A complete list of rules can be found at
