Thank you for joining us for round 3 of this year’s Woburn Challenge! Problems, solutions, and test data are now posted here.

This contest proved to be one of our toughest yet, with the third problem of the senior division proven to be especially perplexing due to its ad-hoc nature. You may also have noticed that we decided to provide a kick to the junior division’s difficulty. The reason of course, is to keep all of you (even juniors!) on your toes and habitually challenged!

The senior division prizewinners are:
  • Jason Yuen of Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School ($200)
  • Joey Yu of Thornhill Secondary School ($100)
  • William Wen of Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School ($50)
  • Leo Feng of Vincent Massey Secondary School ($50)
  • Brian Chau of Woburn Collegiate Institute ($50)
The junior division prizewinners are:
  • Arsh Raza of William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute ($50)
  • Justin Pu of William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate Institute ($25)
  • Henning Jiang of Vincent Massey Secondary School ($25)
Congratulations! These prizes will be distributed as Visa gift cards, and we will be contacting your teachers shortly about sending them out. Remember to keep on practicing, since we still have many prizes in the remaining online round, as well as the invitational finals!

As you could probably tell, we are cranking up the difficulty as the 2016-17 contest season progresses. While we expect you to be constantly practicing, we are also working to improve the contest experience from our end.

  • William Wen of Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School ($100)
  • Jason Yuen of Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School ($50)
  • Zixiang Zhou of University Heights Public School ($50)
