The Spring PS CSTA (Computer Science Teachers Association) Programming Contest was held this past Saturday, April 28. Hosted at and sponsored by Amazon.com, the contest featured 26 teams (of 1 – 3 students each) from 12 area high schools competing to solve programming problems in a 3-hour, pizza-fueled mindfest.
Roosevelt fielded four teams (resplendent in green and gold) in the novice division and all of them competed admirably, going up against perennial powerhouse competitors from Lakeside, Garfield, and Tahoma high schools.
In a fantastic finish, the tremendous trio of Kevin Ault, Galen Caldwell, and Grant Price took home the Novice First Place medal. And dynamic duo Sam Dixon and Kilian Folger brought in the Novice Second Place prize.
Congratulations and way to go, Rough Riders!
