The LexMACS (Lexington Mathematical CS) club is proud to announce our second annual Lexington Informatics Tournament! The contest window lasts from July 15 — July 19 EDT, and participants can begin their 3 hours window at any time. If you are interested, please visit our website at https://lit.lhsmathcs.org/. Once you register, you can see all the past problems on the contest page. Some of our problem-setters include codetiger927, eggag32, SuperJ6, and eyangch. Special thanks to testers DreamingLeaf and plourde27 as well!

LIT consists of two separate rounds: Standard and CTF. Teams may participate and win prizes in both. The Standard round is similar to USACO and CodeForces, where you are given 8 algorithm problems and 3 hours to solve, with difficulties ranging from D3 to D1. The CTF round will rely on contestants’ knowledge of computer security and general problem-solving skills to complete challenges and locate a "flag" for each.

Participants may form teams of up to 3 members! Everyone is welcome to participate in the contest regardless of nationality and age. However, only those currently in middle school or high school are eligible for winning prizes.

Awards

While we currently do not have the complete list of prizes yet, our current prize pool is worth more than $6000! In addition, all top 50 participants will be able to receive a Wolfram|Alpha Notebook Edition, each valued at $72.

For more detailed and latest information, please join our Discord Server and visit our Website. Registration will remain open up until the end of the contest window.

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to DM the organizers in the Discord Server, or email us at lexmathcsclub@gmail.com.

Hope to see you soon!

LIT 2021 is officially over! We are so glad that you guys are able to come, and we really hope you enjoyed our rounds XD. This year we had more than 900 teams participate, almost 9 fold from last year’s 100 teams :KannaWoah:, so we really appreciate all of you and your enthusiasm. The scoreboard of the standard round will be released promptly and problems will remain up for the contestants to upsolve. Editorials will also be posted in the near future.

Finally, we will be announcing our winning teams at the Closing Ceremony tomorrow at 3PM EDT(we will send youtube livestream link soon). If your team is in the top 3 of either rounds or part of the top 50 participants in the standard round, you should come! Furthermore, we will be explaining solutions to the Standard Round problems as well. Hope to see you there~

Feel free to discuss the problems and their solutions in the comment section :D

Love you guys <3 LIT Organizers 2021
