The core of the mathleague.org elementary program consists of a series of contests held throughout the school year, culminating in a National/International Championship.
In most states, top-scoring students at local contests are invited to compete in their State Championship in April or May. In some larger states, top-scoring students advance to a District Championship before qualifying for their State Championship. Winners at State Championships are invited to the US Elementary National Championship in June. Outside the US, top-scoring students at local contests are invited to compete in their National Championship in March. Winners at these National Championships are invited to the International Championship in June.
Have questions about qualification policies and procedures? Be sure to check out the details.
Students and schools wishing to participate in this school year's contests should check our calendar for information on when and where our contests will be held in your area.
A mathleague.org annual school membership allows us to communicate more effectively with your school.
All schools must submit their Membership information before registering for any mathleague.org contest. No payment is required for a Membership. However, a Paid Membership is a requirement to compete at any District or State Championship.
In addition, schools with a Paid Membership are invited to administer the in-school round of qualifying tests to students on their campus.
