Prizes

Up to 450$ will be given away in prices to the winners of the different sections! Great books will also be randomly given out to some lucky newcomers, whether or not they finished near the top or near the bottom. Oh and by the way, the four CMSA Board members are allowed to compete, but they aren’t allowed to win any money.

Please note that since we will be coordinating the championships across three cities, it might take up to a few hours before we’re able to confirm who won any given challenge. Whenever it’s necessary, we’ll later arrange for the money to be deposited directly into the bank accounts of all the different winners.
