The 2018 Regional Contest was held in Sydney from November 23rd to 25th.
The Auckland Site Champions, Messy University from University of Auckland, placed 2nd and will represent the region in the World Finals next year in Portugal.
Auckland has been a site for the ACM South Pacific Regional Contest ever since the region was founded. It used to be the only site in the North Island of New Zealand, and teams have come from Wellington and Palmerston North to compete. More recently, Wellington or Palmerston North have also run a site thus reducing the travelling needed for teams at the southern end of the island.
