46th Calgary Junior High School Mathematics Contest
The Calgary Junior High School Mathematics Contest is back for 2023. The exam will take place the morning of Wednesday May 3, 2023 in a classroom at your school. Writing the contest will last for one and one half hours.
The contact teachers will be asked to print out copies of the examination for students writing in class and to scan the results and submit them for marking.
Details about how the competition will be offered and how it will be marked will be sent in a more detailed information sheet to teachers who register their students for the contest.
The exam is primarily for Grade 9 students; however, all junior high students attending schools in Calgary and surrounding districts are eligible. Please limit the number of participants to approximately 10% of the Grade 9 population in your school.
School and individual prizes will include trophies, medals, and a cash award to the students achieving in the Top 3. A possibly virtual Awards Ceremony is being planned for June 13, 2023.
Marking Session: Volunteers are needed to help mark the examination after school hours on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 in a collaborative session using ZOOM. We request that each participating school provide at least one marker, and we recommend at least one marker volunteer per 25 students writing the contest from a participating school.
Because we are still in a Covid recovery mode, there will be no charges for participation in the 2023 contest.
To register your school, please fill out the online Google Form by April 20, 2023:
