Seminole State first overall in intercollegiate programming competition

A group of 20 Seminole State College of Florida students took home the team trophy by winning the 11th annual Intercollegiate Programming Competition held on April 9 at eight college campuses in Florida.

The competition featured 11 teams from colleges all across the state attempting to solve eight computer programming problems. Contestant submissions were scored by a panel of judges based on a set of expected results for each problem. Cash prizes were given to first, second and third place winners.

Seminole State student Taylor Gratzer finished first overall individually and received a $500 cash prize.

“We had an enthusiastic group of 20 Seminole State students participate in the competition this year,” said Richard Grant, professor of information technology at Seminole State. “I was thrilled that two of our students finished first and third overall and that Seminole State won first place in the team competition.”

The programming competition, which began at Seminole State in 2005, has evolved into a statewide competition since and is open to any Florida state college that wishes to participate.

Seminole State’s Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Computer Programming and Analysis prepares students for an entry level position in the software development industry. In addition, the degree offers a direct path to transfer into Seminole State's Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Information Systems Technology.
