Prizes:

    2nd place: $30 plus medal

    3rd place: $20 plus medal

 

The Contest and Rules:

Given a 9-by-9 grid divided into nine 3-by-3 regions, place the numbers 1 through 9 into the 81 grids with no number repeated on any row, column, or 3-by-3 region. The puzzle is started with some filled-in (“the givens”) numbers (see example below). The job is to fill in the rest of the boxes. The number of the givens will determine the level of difficulty. Fewer is the givens, the harder is the puzzle. The contest will get harder as it progresses through the rounds. The preliminary round will be easier than Super; and Super will be easier than Final. Who advances in each round is determined by comparing the number of correct entry. Each round is given 15-30 minutes.
