The SBU High School Programming Contest is an ICPC-styled (International Collegiate Programming Competition) Battle of the Brains Competition open for teams of three high school studnets using Java or Python to solve high-school level problems (generally needing mathematical sophistication of college algebra). The contest has automated judging.

The contest will take place in the Wellness Center on the campus of Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO.

Contest Rules
