The Ref Contest - Winners

Finally, the first competition at Osmania University has come to an end. It was a great pleasure for the entire S.O.U.R.C.E Team to see such participation and enthusiasm.

The participation for the competition has been great and the total turnout was more than what we had anticipated. We had 12 students actively participating in the competition and the total strength of the group as of today is 470. We had students from over 50 colleges participating in the event.

Initially we planned to hold the competition till January 15th, but seeing the flood of people joining our group, we decided to close the contest early, as we expected that the high number would create apprehensions in a lot of people. However, we made sure that all the profiles were real and also created a database of all the members so that we can contact them when required. (The database is attached to the results discussion at the group)

On January 7th, we finally declared the results and distributed the prizes on 9th January. The following is the final list of points and the prize winners.

Arjun Kumar90
Moeed Mohammad58
Dontu Venkata Balasubramanyam23
Eranki Preetham12
Amit Alam08
Syed Ameednuddin01
Sri Kiran00

As, it is evident above, there was a tie and after a lot of thought and debate, the co-ordination committee of the S.O.U.R.C.E team decided that we would give 4 GB pen drives to both of them.

The 4GB Pen drives were given to Arjun Kumar, Mahmood, Moeed Mohammad and Shashank. T Shirts were given to Suma and Balasubramanyam.

As consolation prizes, the other participants were given a small gift hamper which consisted of a pen, a key chain, an OpenSolaris 2008.05 CD and a NetBeans CD.

A hearty congrats to all the winners!!!
