Mathematics and Computing Contests

Our contests inspire students in Grades 5 to 12 to get excited about math and computer science and stretch their limits. We work hard to make sure that the contests we offer are open to all and challenge even the most gifted students.

Visit our Coronavirus Information webpage for more details on the impact of COVID-19 on CEMC contests, workshops and resources.

Getting Involved

Math and computing contests are about far more than competition. Our contests challenge students from around the world with a range of abilities to grow valuable problem solving skills.

If you’re interested in writing one of our contests, talk to your math or computer science teacher.

If you’re a teacher interested in helping your students get involved, contact us for everything you need to get started. Learn about contest registration, view this year’s contest dates and see our fee table to estimate registration costs.

Preparing to Write a Contest

The best way to prepare to write a contest is to practice problem solving. Explore our contest preparation resources to access past contests and solutions, CEMC publications, CEMC Digital resources and more.
