The 2016-17 competition will consist of two rounds throughout the school year, at the following times:

  • Round #1 : 1st full week of March (March 6th - March 10th)
  • Round #2: 1st full week of April (April 3rd - April 7th)


The students' scores from the two rounds will be added up to determine each students' overall score for the competition. Teachers may choose any period of available class time during the weeks indicated above to administer the contests. Each round is split by grades. That is, every grade will receive different competition papers. The competition format is the same for both rounds, and will be as follows:

Grade 2: 8 problems in 25 minutes

Grades 3 and 4: 15 problems in 40 minutes

Grades 5: 20 problems in 50 minutes

Grades 6, 7, and 8: 25 problems in 60 minutes
