Longview Students Go To Prague Competition

A team of East Texas college students is headed to Europe to go up against some stiff competition from around the world. Three Letourneau University students left today for Prague in the Czech Republic.

They will be competing in the 28th annual International Collegiate Programming Contest. 70 teams from around the world have been invited to a competition that requires computer geniuses to solve eight programming problems in a five hour limit.

The team who solves the problems in the least amount of time wins the gold. The students are excited about the chance to go up against heavyweights like Harvard, Stanford and M.I.T. Its the second time in the last three years that Letourneau has qualified for the elite competition.
