Event Conclusion, Awards & Teardown

Trenton Computer Festival: As this event is being run jointly with the Trenton Computer Festival, I’m pleased to announce that all competitors will be able to participate in and attend the various events and talks that are part of the TCF for free! I’m also pleased to announce that the winners of all three classes will be invited to attend the TCF awards dinner at 6pm free of charge to have their awards presented to them. A special thanks to them and if you all could support them that would be fantastic.

TCNJ STEM Society: Also helping with the running of this event is the TCNJ STEM Society! They will have a few tables setup and will be selling various merchandise as well as some snacks and drinks. As one of the VPs of this organization we wouldn’t have been able to do it without them so if we could send a special thanks to the rest of the board and organization and if you could support us as well it would be greatly appreciated.
