RHS Programming Contest

The 15th annual Richardson High School "Frozen Eagle" programming contest is scheduled to be on Saturday, November 10th, 2018

Proposed Changes for 2018 Frozen Eagle...
  1. We've done away with the written test! We are not administering the 40-question UIL-style test this year.
  2. Three-hour programming contest only.
  3. We are using HackerRank as our judging system. Each team must have their own HackerRank account (just one).  Signing up is easy! Go to HackerRank.com.
  4. Teams may receive partial credit for problems. For example, if a team solves a problem with the correct output for 3 out of the 5 test cases, they get 60 points.  If they re-submit the same problem again and achieve the correct output for 5 out of 5 test cases, they get the full 100 points.
  5. Ties are based off of time. 
  6. We are supporiting multiple languages including: ADA, Bash, C, C#, C++, C++14, Clojure, CoffeeScript, Common Lisp (SBCL), D, Elixir, Erlang, F#, Fortran, Go, Groovy, Haskell, Java, Java 8, JavaScript, Julia, Kotlin, LOLCODE, Lua, OCaml, Objective-C, PHP, Pascal, Perl, PyPy, PyPy3, Python 2, Python 3, R, Racket, Ruby, Rust, Scala, Smalltalk, Swift, Tcl, VB.NET

Proposed Schedule
8:30 AM        Registration opens
9:50 AM        Registration ends
10:00 AM      Programming contest begins (3 hours)
1:00 PM        Programming contest ends
1:15 PM        Lunch
1:45 PM        Awards
2:00 PM        Event ends

Divisions
  • Advanced - any student may compete in the advance division
  • Novice - students who are new to competitive programming and/or have limited experience with programming may competed in the novice division. 
If you are unsure where to categorize your student(s), please have them complete the novice Frozen Eagle 2017 packet.  If they are able to complete all 12 problems in under 2 hours, they're more than likely advanced-level.
