Jan 17 Contest at The Pingry School
mathleague.org is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a math contest on Wednesday Jan 17, 2018 for students in grades 3 through 6. Testing will consist of Sprint, Target, Number Sense, and Team rounds. The contest will be held at The Pingry School in Short Hills, and the cost will be $20 per student.
However, a discounted rate of $15 will apply to participants who prepay their registration fees online prior to the close of online registration. The approximate schedule will be as follows:
Please note that at some of our larger contests (particularly in the Bay Area), the awards ceremony typically starts as much as half an hour later than listed. This is largely a function of how many students neglect to prepay their entry fees and must check in manually on site. By prepaying your entry fees you help us start earlier AND you don't run a risk of your registration being canceled if the contest reaches capacity. In situations where a contest sells out, some students who have not prepaid may be notified before the registration deadline that their registration has been canceled in order to make room for students who are prepared to prepay their registrations.
- 03:30 PM Check in

The contest is located at 50 Country Day Drive (The Pingry School) in Short Hills; a map and directions are available here.
Prizes will be given to the top students in each grade level, as well as to the top teams. Students are expected to bring their own pencils and calculators.
Every group of up to 12 students that registers for the contest must be accompanied by an adult sponsor who is willing to help proctor or grade tests (this sponsor should be designated on the registration form). Parents can register individual students and serve as sponsors if necessary, but we recommend that parents check to see if there is anyone else at the school who is planning to attend before registering an individual student.
We regret to inform you that registration for this contest has exceeded capacity. Please make sure to register early for the next contest to guarantee a seat at the event. Please note that we are always looking for large venues to host contests, and if your school would be interested in hosting a future contest we would love to talk with you further. Contact us at email@example.com for more information about hosting. Do NOT contact us to ask if you can still register for this contest; such requests will be ignored.
