Bigger and better every year

We have been running our Master the Mainframe contests in the United States and Canada (excludng Quebec) since 2005 with increasing participation every year. While the difficulty of the contest is targeted toward college and university students, we opened the contest in 2007 to high school students as well. That year, Sushen Patel, a high school junior from Dallas, Texas, won the whole thing. High school students have played a huge part in the contest ever since, with over 1,000 high school students registering to compete every year since 2008, competing as peers against all levels of students in higher education, including doctoral and continuing education students.

Our first year, we were thrilled to have 750 students register to compete. We had no idea that the contest would grow every year after that, allowing us to say, "This was our biggest contest ever!" for eight consecutive years. Just check out these enrollment numbers to see what we mean:

We are proud of (and amazed by) the students who work so hard for these honors. We also greatly appreciate the educators who introduce them to the contest and support their endeavors. These pages list the winners of our past US and Canada contests. Please join us in congratulating all of our IBM Mainframe Masters.
