An IOI Achievement
The International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI) is a competitive programming competition hosted annually for high school students from around the world. However, the journey to IOI is not easy — to compete in the highly esteemed Olympiad, students are selected through a top four performance in a national computing contests. In Canada, these are the Canadian Computing Competition and Canadian Computing Olympiad.
IOI itself runs for 2 days with 3 extremely challenging problems each. The contestants have 5 hours to solve these problems and are then placed based on their scores. Christopher Trevisan, Co-Vice President of MCPT’s Competitive branch, placed 83 out of 343 contestants from 90 countries around the world, earning a silver medal.
MCPT is extremely proud of Christopher for his achievement, and we hope that he continues to display excellence in all his future programming endeavours!
