The School of Computer Science wrapped up the 14th Annual Windsor Regional Secondary School Programming Competition (SSPC) on Friday December 1st, 2017.

The events include a training session, a mock competition, and the actual contest.  The top 5 teams receive valuable prizes of up to $100 per contestant. Five challenging questions were presented with the ultimate goal of solving them correctly in 3 hours. 

This year 22 teams competed representing 9 regional schools from Windsor/Essex/Chatham/Kent.

Many thanks to the secondary school teachers who took the time to bring their students to the competition. They came from Belle River, Catholic Central, Chatham-Kent, General Amherst, Herman, Leamington District, Riverside, Vincent Massey and Ursuline College.

Winners from the top six teams will be awarded a School of Computer Science entrance award for up to $2000 for each participant of the winning teams. 

The top team solved all 5 problems!

Congratulations to the winners:

Special kudos to the SCS  Faculty, Staff - both technical and administrative, for handling all of the logistics. It is a highly technical competition with a lot of advance preparation.

Thanks to all the student volunteers – it is encouraging to see our students walk by, see an event going on, and immediately pitch in and start helping.
