County Wide Math Competition
The Math Contest is a county-wide competition for 5-8th grade students in Santa Cruz County. Due to COVID, we temporarily suspended the Math Contest for 2020 and 2021, but hope to bring it back Saturday May 7, 2022.
Now in its 53rd year, the contest provides students with both a team competition and an individual test format.
The team competition requires students work together using problem-solving strategies, showing work and providing clear and detailed explanations. The individual test for all grade levels uses a free response format.
Students receive certificates of participation and contest winners receive achievement medals and special awards for the top three winners.
