The Hawkeye Challenge Programming Competition is hosted by the University of Iowa Computer Science Department and the University of Iowa ACM Chapter. This competition is for neighboring high schools to get involved in computer science and to be able to enjoy technology as much as we at The University of Iowa do! Participating teams in two divisions will program solutions to problems on the computers in the Computer Science Labs. The first three teams of each division will be recognized during an awards ceremony following the competition. Any changes, additions, or clarifications to these rules will be announced during the orientation meeting preceding the competition.
Prizes will be given away in person at 1:45pm
Rules specified in your packets.
Teams will be ranked per the number of problems they complete correctly. For example, a team that completes 5 problems correctly will finish ahead of a team that completes 4 problems correctly. There is no penalty for problems that are not solved. Teams who solve the same number of problems are ranked by least total time. The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the accepted run plus 10 penalty minutes for every rejected run for that problem regardless of submittal time. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved. All standings will be available on HackerRank's Leaderboard for the competition.
