Middle School State Championships
In order to qualify for the State Championship a student must participate in a middle school qualifying round (either a local contest or the in-school qualifying test) during the school year and do any one of the following:
- Earn at least 50% of the available points on any of the individual tests or the individual total score.
- Score strictly higher than 80% of the other participants in his or her grade at that contest on any of the individual tests or the individual total score.
- Participate on a team that scores either at least 50% of the available points or strictly higher than 80% of the other teams at that contest on the Team test.
- If fewer than 50 students qualify for the State Championship in any state, the State Championship coordinator may relax the qualification requirements upon receiving mathleague.org approval to do so.
- Teams at the State Championship do not need to consist of the same individuals who competed together when qualifying for the State Championship; the school's coach may choose how to arrange the qualifying students from a given school into teams.
- Students may only sign up for the State Championship in the state where their school is physically located, and then only if they have qualified for the State Championship.
- State Championships are listed on our events page (click "upcoming events" at the top of this page) as soon as their dates and locations are confirmed. If your state is not listed by March 15, contact us at email@example.com for updated information. Some states list their championships late in the year, but rest assured we will hold a State Championship in each state where students participate in our contests and qualify for state.
