2017 Tournament

The 2017 tournament will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

Each school may enter from one to three 4-student teams, who will compete in the usual written and ciphering rounds. (Fewer than four persons may compete as a team, with missing members being awarded scores of zero.) Individuals without a team can participate as well.

The entry charge is $35.00 per each team (not per each school) or $15 for individuals participating without a team. (This includes the charge for a light lunch during the competition break.) 

For each chaperon over one per school, please add $5.

Each school is limited to 3 teams or 12 students total — no exceptions.

Please print and mail the following registration form along with payment to Julie McEver no later than September 30, 2017.
