Details about the contest:
The contest consists of 5 problems, each for 10 points for a

by two graders. The score per problem is the average of the two
scores. The total score of each participant is the sum of all
the averages. Any correct solution receives full credit.
Individual prizes (gift certificates) are awarded to the
participants with best totals. The school with the best sum
of its top three participants wins a traveling trophy.
