Sixteen students who scored the most points were invited to participate in the three-hour finals. The jury consisted of Pavel Mavrin, a lecturer at the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies (ITMO) and the 2004 World Programming Champion, as well as London-based Russian programmers, winners of various competitions Leonid Shishlo and Yury Bedny.

The top ten young programmers will attend a tour of one of the London’s leading software development companies. The London School of Mathematics and Programming based at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo was founded in 2015 by Anastasia Stone, a graduate of the St.Petersburg State University of Mathematics and Mechanics. The school provides classes in mathematics, programming, chess, as well as workshops on interdisciplinary sciences. International competitions in mathematics and robotics are regularly held at the school.
