WVU Tech High School Programming Competition


Dear Faculty,
The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at WVU Institute of Technology is excited to announce and invite high school students (incoming 9th-12th graders) to the fourth annual WVU Tech High School Programming Competition.  The competition will be on Saturday, November 04, 2017 at the Carter Hall Building at the WVU Tech campus in Beckley, WV. Please register by October 27, 2017.
The competition will be an all-day event, where students will test their problem-solving and programming skills on several problems of varying difficulty.  Lunch will be provided, and we will have refreshments after the competition.  Cash prizes will be awarded to each student in the top three teams.  The exact amounts are to be determined.  In the past, the prizes have been $100 for each member on the third place team, $200 for each member on the second place team, and $300 for each member on the first place team.  We are hoping to provide the same amounts for this year’s competition. 
In addition, eligible members of the top three teams will receive scholarships to attend WVU Tech.  Each member on the third place team will be eligible for up to $1,000, each member on the second place team will be eligible for up to $2,000, and each member on the first place team will be eligible for up to $3,000.  These scholarships are renewable for up to four years, on the condition that they meet the eligibility requirements as specified by our financial aid department.
I have enclosed the official rules of the competition, a schedule outlining the events, and a flyer announcing the competition with this letter.  Please feel free to make copies for your students. 
Please follow the link for the registration. (Registration is free.)
More information about the competition and practice questions is available here.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for your time and consideration, and we hope to see you at the competition.

THIS FRIDAY April 21st has been designated as the Capital High Day of Silence for 2017.

The Day of Silence is a student-led action where concerned people take some form of a vow of silence to bring attention to the name-calling, bullying and harassment—in effect, the silencing—experienced by people who are bullied.

All teachers, students and clubs are encouraged to participate by wearing black, taking a vow if possible to be silent, be a vocal supporter if possible, talking about anti-bullying in your classrooms on Thursday.  

We have three goals:

Remember to NOT be silent when you see someone being bullied.

Remember those people who feel their voice is silenced due to bullying.

Remember that if bullying is not stopped, someone’s voice could be permanently stopped if they choose to take their own life.

3.2 million, are victims of bullying at school and 90% of LGBT students reported bullying at their school.  Countrywide, this results in about 4,400 deaths per year.

We hope today that you will take the vow and make Capital High School a place that does not tolerate bullying of any kind and End the Silence.

Students should look for information today and tomorrow at a table in the commons for stickers, information and cards about participating this Friday.   

IF you want to register that you are participating, go to http://action.glsen.org/page/s/DOSREG  or search for GLSEN Day of Silence
