Math Contest

County Wide Math Competition

Congratulations to all participants in the 2023 Math Contest!!

We had 150 students, grades 5-8, representing 40 teams across Santa Cruz County, compete on Saturday, May 6, at Aptos High School. 

All students participated in both a Team Competition, and an Individual Competition, and all will receive an award for participating. However, only the top 3 finishers in each category will take home a medal. In all, 54 students won a medal.


Special thanks to all the parent and teacher volunteers who helped make the event go smoothly.

If you received an award with a misspelled a name, please let Kevin Drinkard, Math Contest Coordinator know so we can correct it and send an updated version to your school <>

Thank you!!
