We are pleased to inform you that on the night of December 31, 2010 on January 1, 2011 will be not only fireworks, champagne, gifts and presents, but we will summarize the Codeforces year. Great news that Thomas Cormen gave permission to use his name in Codeforces annual award. So, we are pleased to announce the annual Codeforces award — the Cormen Medal!
It will be three awards this year:
- the best Codeforces participant
- the best secondary school Codeforces participant (based on Winter Programming School Olympiads for Schoolchildred results)
- the best problemsetter
The first of the medals will be awarded to participant who will have the highest rating at the end of the year. The second medal will be presented to the best participant of Winter Programming School Olympiads for Schoolchildred 2010/2011. Finally, the third prize will get the most active and successful author of problems for Codeforces competitions (Codeforces team members not considered in the tabulation of results).
Wish you high ratings,,
MikeMirzayanov and Codeforces team
