Math Competitions for Gifted Students

One needs to plan well in advance to set up mathematics competitions. It is not too early to start planning for next year. Just choosing which competitions to participate in is a challenge. Many of the sites below list sample problems, so you can get a taste of what it’s like to participate.

While most competitions are for high school students, there are a handful at the middle school/junior high level, and just a few at the elementary level. When a range of grade levels is listed, there are usually competitions set up for just one or two grades at a time (i.e., a test for each of grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8). Here are some competitions to consider.
