PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT HOW OUR ONLINE CONTESTS WORK AND WHAT STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO PREPARE YOUR STUDENTS FOR THE CONTEST
In each nation outside the US where mathleague.org held a National Championship in 2022, certain high-scoring students are qualified to participate in the International Championship; details for how to qualify can be found here. Registration for this contest is only open to students who qualify or who are selected off the waiting list to replace qualified students who are unable to attend. To ensure a seat at the contest, qualified students must register by May 8; after May 8, if space is available, students will be invited from the waiting list to replace qualified students who have not yet registered. To join the waiting list, please send an email to email@example.com indicating which students from your nation would like to attend the contest if space is available. The contest fee will be $20 per student if paid online by May 8 or $30 per student after May 8, and students must pre-register for the contest by clicking the link below. Your confirmation email will indicate how to make payment for the contest.
To see a list of students from your nation who have qualified for the International Championship, go to our results page, select your National Championship from the drop-down menu, and click the "qualifiers to next level" link. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your nation had two or more students in the same grade with the same initials and you need help determining which student(s) qualified for the International Championship. Also be sure to let us know if you find any mistakes in the list so we can make sure everyone who qualified for the International Championship shows up on the list of qualifiers.
Please check with your national coordinator before paying the registration fee for this contest to determine whether you should pay us directly or pay your national coordinator. If you do not know who your national coordinator is, contact us at email@example.com and we can put you in touch with your national coordinator. Students who attend school in Africa or a Pacific island nation do not need to pay a registration fee for this event and may ignore any information received during the registration process that refers to payment.
Please note that only students who have prepaid online or are exempt from paying may attend this contest. Each participant must have a designated adult chaperone who will be physically present at the same location as the student to facilitate the student's participation in the contest, proctor the student during the tests, and help students make sure their answers get submitted properly. If multiple students are present in the same location, they may share a chaperone as long as that chaperone can fulfill the duties required on behalf of all students in their care. Click below to register for this contest. Note: Registration deadline for qualified students is May 8. After May 8, additional participants will be accepted only if space is available.
Written testing will consist of Target, Sprint, and Team rounds. Participants are expected to bring their own pencils and calculators. Participants will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting around 6:00am UTC on the day of the contest, and participants will be held in a waiting room until 7:00am. The first half hour before testing will be spent making sure students get checked into our system, verifying cameras and names, and helping with tech support issues. Testing is expected to start at 7:30am UTC.
While in the online meeting room, all participants MUST have a working camera and be visible on camera throughout the testing WITHOUT an artificial background. In addition, all students must be listed under their real name in the participants list. Violators will be removed from the testing environment with no refunds and no opportunity to make up the test. Please note that failure to pay attention to this rule is not an excuse for violating it, and failure to have been caught violating this rule at a previous contest is not an excuse for violating it at this contest.
If your students cannot test at the designated time for religious or health reasons that can be verified by documentation from clergy or a physician, please contact us for more information about how we can accommodate the affected students.
Prizes will be given to the top students in each grade level, as well as to the top teams, and will be announced at an awards ceremony starting shortly after the conclusion of the written testing. Plan on the awards ceremony taking at least an hour.
For those students who win prizes, we will be in touch with their national coordinators to arrange delivery of the prizes.
Practice tests are available for purchase at the mathleague.org store if you would like to prepare for the contest (one set of tests is available for free download on our site as well). For schools that did not get a copy of the National Championship questions and would like to review those to practice for the International Championship, please let us know once you have registered for the contest and we will email a copy of the questions to you.
Congratulations to everyone who qualified for this event; we look forward to seeing you on May 15!
