The NMU-hosted programming contest is designed specifically for college students and has had as many as 24 teams from five universities participating.

The NMU Invitational Programming Contest, although not having any ties to a larger international competition, draws more participation than the above competition does; it is the largest programming competition in the upper peninsula. This event allows our students and faculty to interact with their counterparts at other universities. The event has gotten strong positive feedback from the participants from other universities, and it receives positive exposure from the local media. The event is largely organized by our students, making this a learning experience on several fronts. As with the above competition, we generally perform quite well at the event, demonstrating that our program compares favorably to other programs in the region.
