Middle School National Championship (US)

In order to qualify for our National Championship in the United States, a student must attend the State Championship and do any one of the following:
  • Place among the top 3 overall individuals in the student's grade level at the State Championship if there are fewer than 100 students at the State Championship.
  • Place among the top 6 overall individuals in the student's grade level at the State Championship if there are 100 or more students at the State Championship.
  • Be a team member of one of the top 3 overall schools at the State Championship, based on the "sweepstakes" score, and contribute to the school's sweepstakes score by either having one of the 4 highest individual point totals from the school or being a member of the school's top-scoring team on the team round.
  • Students who do not qualify under one of the above rules may qualify as a "wild card" by placing among the top 10 overall individuals in the student's grade level across all states or by being a sweepstakes contributor of one of the top 6 schools across all states as described above. These students are not eligible to collect a prize for their performance at the State Championship and will not show up in our results as a National Championship qualifier but will nevertheless be allowed to compete at the National Championship the same as all other qualifiers.
In certain states, mathleague.org may elect not to hold a State Championship. In those states, any student who qualified for the State Championship will be invited directly to the National Championship.

Additional Policies:

  • Any student who is invited to attend the National Championship will be eligible to compete in all events.
  • Only students who have qualified for the National Championship as an individual or part of a sweepstakes team, or who are accepted off the waiting list, may compete at that meet.
  • Teams at the National Championship do not need to consist of the same individuals who competed together when qualifying for the National Championship; the school's coach may choose how to arrange the qualifying students from a given school into teams.
