Cypress Creek High School’s computer programming team defeated other teams from 26 schools to capture the overall Sweepstakes Trophy at the Computer Science Meet held Saturday, Dec. 10.
The contest, hosted by Cypress Falls High School, consisted of two-hour programming and a 45-minute written test for advanced and novice divisions. Students were scored based on Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Style for programming, and UIL format for the written test.
Cypress Creek High School senior Alan Viverette placed first in the Individual UIL Test Results. CFISD schools placing in the Advanced Division were Cypress Creek, first and third places, Langham Creek, second place, and Cy-Fair, seventh place. In the Novice Division, Cypress Creek placed sixth and Langham Creek placed eighth.
The next programming contest will be hosted by Jersey Village on Saturday, Jan. 7, and hosted by Cypress Creek on Saturday, Jan. 21.
“These contests are a great way for students to go outside the class and see how much they know,” said Stacey Armstrong, a computer science teacher at Cypress Falls High School and a TCEA select committee member. “The programming contests are open to anyone. We have had teams enter the contest from Dallas, El Paso, and Lufkin. They come from all over.”
To enter the contest, schools can enter up to eight programming teams (consisting of three students) for $30 a team; and $3 per student for the written test. Payment can be made in advance or on the day of the event.
