I suggest the MATLAB Contest team ...

Use a separate test set for the grand prize

To avoid the problem of tweaking and over-fitting on the test set, every submission could be run on two different test stes - the first is used for all mid-contest competitions and scores are made known immediately, while the second is used for the Grand Prize, and scores are only made known after the queue closes. This would put more emphasis on making general improvements to the code.
