Cracking the Code

31 January 2020

Hearty OHS congratulations to Year 13 Elizaveta on once again winning a prize in the highly competitive National Cipher Challenge run by the University of Southampton.

The competition entailed nine rounds of gruelling cryptography, in which Elizaveta competed against 6,508 competitors across the UK. She has subsequently been named the winner of the Trinity College Cambridge Prize, which comes with a prize win of £800, and will be invited to the prize-giving event in the Spring time, usually held at Bletchley Park, home of the famous codebreakers. 

Visit the National Cipher Challenge website to learn more about the event and Elizaveta’s impressive achievement.
