Codebusters B/CIn both divisions, Codebusters will be a full event that counts towards sweepstakes.

For Division C only: event will be run using national rules. Rationale: prevent cheating, increase the spread of scores since there is no timed question. Time and/or specific questions will probably be the tiebreakers depending on Scilympiad's limitations.
