OHS Computer Science Students Nab 1st in Hack 4 Good Competition
Seven Ozark High School students participated in the annual Hack 4 Good competition Nov. 2, and all came home with a medal.
During the event, which involves students from across Southwest Missouri, students receive computer science problems to solve as a team.
Ozark took two, three-person teams which placed first and fifth in the competition. Ozark student Kyle Duckworth also participated on a GOCAPS team, which placed 10th.
The first-place team, named PyGang, included students Nate Kean, Seven Thomsen and Christian Armstrong.
The fifth-place team, named Code Syndicate, included Ashton Barnwell, Justin Battaglia and Chrystian Ray.
This event has an adult section and a student section, which compete at different times. The adult section connects designers and developers with community projects. Area computer science professionals help non-profit groups achieve greater impact through technology.
Participating in Hack 4 Good allows Ozark students to not only compete, but to see how professionals use their skills for bettering the community.
