Mathematics and Computing Contests

A contest may never be written prior to the official contest date. We will do our best to arrange alternate dates for serious school-wide conflicts. Please contact us if you wish to arrange this.

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