Middle School Program
The core of the mathleague.org middle school program consists of a series of contests held throughout the school year, culminating in a National/International Championship. Problems and contest formats in our middle school contests are designed to also prepare middle school students for the MATHCOUNTS competition series.
Top-scoring students in qualifying rounds are invited to compete in their State Championship contest (or their National Championship, for schools outside the US), held in March. Winners of each State Championship are invited to compete in the US National Middle School Championship in May. Winners of each non-US National Championship are invited to compete in the International Championship in May.
Have questions about qualification policies and procedures? Be sure to check out the details.
Students and schools wishing to participate in this school year's contests should check our calendar for information on when and where our contests will be held in your area.
A mathleague.org annual school membership allows us to communicate more effectively with your school.
All schools must submit their Membership information before registering for any mathleague.org contest. No payment is required for a Membership.
In addition, member schools are invited to administer the In-School Round Contest Problem Set to students on their campus.

Contest Problem Sets
For a sneak peek of what you'll experience at a mathleague.org contest, a free Contest Problem Set is available by email to anyone who signs up for our mailing list.
Looking for more? Additional Contest Problem Sets from prior contests may be purchased from our online store.
If your school is not already registered for the official MATHCOUNTS competition series, make sure to get involved in that program. Our middle school program and MATHCOUNTS competitions complement each other in difficulty and style, and would benefit your school in preparation for both.
