The NOI.PH 2021 National Finals were held virtually on 8-9 May 2021. Of the 30 top scorers of the National Eliminations, 24 competed over two five-hour rounds, each of which consisted of four problems.
The first day of the contest started with an opening ceremony livestream. After the national anthem, Chief of the Science and Technology Manpower Education Research and Promotions Division of the DOST-SEI, Dr. Ruby Cristobal, gave some opening remarks. She stressed the important role that the field of informatics plays in the modern world, highlighted how NOI.PH and its contestants are a testament to our ability to deal with uncertainty, and ended optimistically by noting how the pandemic brought opportunities to those working in IT.
After the inspiring message, NOI.PH President Marte Soliza delivered his own remarks. Then, contest co-director Vernon Gutierrez discussed the rules to the competition before the Practice Round of the competition. In the Practice Round, students spent 90 minutes familiarizing themselves with the contest system through solving some problems.
After a one-hour break, the first round of the finals began, and after the first round, there were some reminders for the second day of the program.
Round 2 began in the morning of the second day. After the competition, NOI.PH Head of Scientific Committee Kevin Atienza went over some of the main ideas of the problems in a livestream.
Finally, the awarding livestream happened. Marte and Vernon presented the certificates, awarded the best rookies of the year, and finally, awarded the medals to the top six contestants. The top six contestants were also interviewed about their training and contest experience.
The Rookie of the Year awards are given to the highest-scoring first-time finalists. Runner-ups Shawn Darren Chua and Daryll Carlsten Ko each won a mouse, and Rookie of the Year Filbert Ephraim Wu won a keyboard.
