Great Showing by our ACM Teams taking 1st and 2nd and 4th at the 2020 Denison Spring Programming Contest.
This year, 15 teams from 4 schools (Denison, Oberlin, Ohio Wesleyan, and U of Akron) competed in this 4-hour contest.

The team “Big Daddy Roboboat and the Biggs Beverage Pod” from Oberlin won the contest, solving all six problems. “O(4)” (Oberlin) came second, “Goodbye World” (Denison) came in third, “Black IDE Peas” (Oberlin) fourth, and “qUArk” (Akron) fifth, all with three problems solved. Most teams solved at least one problem.
