**During the COVID19 Pandemic, the State Math Contest has been put on hiatus**
The Department of Mathematics of Chowan University invites you and your students to participate in our annual Regional Mathematics Contest, which we will host on our campus in March.
The competition will be offered in four divisions: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Comprehensive. First, second, and third place awards will be given in each division for both individual and team categories. A minimum of three contestants is required to enter the team competition in a given division. Because of limited space and personnel, we ask that you limit your Level 1, 2, and 3 teams to ten (10) students each. We are not placing a limit on the number of Comprehensive contestants since these students could win college scholarships and/or positions on the NC ARML team by performing well at the state contest.
