Each school year the Math League gives a High School math competition. The competition consists of 6 separate math contests. Each contest consists of 6 questions given in a 30-minute time period. Score reports are published after each contest for each league. Schools and students compete against each other in each of the leagues. The team score for each school is the sum of the top 5 scores for each school. A perfect team score for a single contest would be 30. The cumulative or total score after each contest is the sum of the team scores for each contest taken to date. The cumulative score for a student is the sum of the students' scores for each of the contests to date. Each report summarizes the following information:

*The High School Score Report Summary*shows the high school score for each contest, as well as the total high school score to date. These results are listed by County (or Province in Canada).*Students with a Perfect Score*is a list of the students in each league who answered all six questions on that particular contest correctly.*High Scoring Schools - Cumulative*lists the top 20 to 30 schools in each league after each contest.*High Scoring Students - Cumulative*lists the top 10 to 30 students in each league after each contest. The student's cumulative score after each contest is the sum of that student's scores for all contests the student has taken to date. For example, the cumulative score for a student after contest 3 would be the sum of the student's scores for contests 1, 2, and 3.

The final score report indicates which schools and students are winners in each league's competition. For awards purposes, each league is divided into regions. Prizes are awarded to the top scoring schools and students in each league, and the top schools in each region. Certificates of merit are also awarded to the top 5 scoring students (for the year) in each school.

Each school year the Math League gives a 6th, 7th and 8th grade
math contest. Each contest consists of 40 multiple-choice questions
given in a 30-minute time period. Score reports are published
after each contest for each league. Schools and students compete
against each other in each of the leagues. The team score for
each school is the sum of the top 5 scores for each school. A
perfect team score for a single contest would be 200. For awards
purposes, schools and students also compete against each other
in smaller regional competitions, with each region consisting
of nearby *counties* (*States* for the Math League Press
competition and *Provinces* in Canada). Each report summarizes
the following information:

- The
*Top Schools in League*section lists the top 25 scoring schools in the League. (The exact number of schools listed may vary slightly.) - The
*Top Students in League*section lists the top 25 scoring students in the League. (The exact number of students listed may vary slightly.) - The
*Regional Standings*section shows the region number, and counties, states, or provinces competing in that region. The top 4 scoring schools in that region are listed, followed by the top 4 scoring students.

For awards purposes, each league is divided into regions. Prizes are awarded to the top scoring schools and students in each league, and the top schools in each region. No school may win both a regional award and an overall League award on any one grade level in the same school year. Certificates of merit are also awarded to the top 5 scoring students (for the year) in each school.
