The Rowan University Programming Contest is heading into its 20th year of giving talented young high school students the opportunity to show off their computer skills and win some prizes.

The contest will be held on Friday, April 28, 2006 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., in Robinson Hall. Competitors will work in pairs and try to solve a computer-programming problem in two and a half hours. Whichever team solves the problem in the quickest and most precise manner wins. The languages currently in place for the 2006 contest include Java, C++, Visual Basic, and QuickBasic. Other languages can be accommodated, if necessary.

This is the first year Rowan is accepting students from outside of New Jersey into the contest. Teachers are encouraged to register interested students (preferably in pairs) as soon as possible. Spots are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For more information or to register, contact Rowan University Computer Science Professor
Darren Provine at 856-256-4500 ext. 3891.
