Penalties only count if the problem which incurred those penalties is submitted correctly.
A tie is broken based on the team with the lowest total time.
Total time is calculated as follows: Amount of time from the start of the competition to the time of the correct submission plus a 20 minute penalty for each incorrect submission.
This year we're going to allow graduate students to compete for prizes. Teams can consist of 3 participants with up to one graduate student. If a team would like to compete with more than one graduate student they may do so but they won't be eligible to win prizes. There is no age restriction for students who participate in the competition.
If students with special needs wish to participate we ask that you communicate that to us as far ahead of time as possible so that we have time to make the proper accommodations for them. Send a message to USDC Programming Competition Support.
