This is a 90-minute mathematics contest which takes place every spring.The exam is primarily for Grade 9 students. However, all junior high students attending schools in Calgary and surrounding districts are eligible. The exam is written by participants in their own school.

School and individual prizes include trophies, medals, a  cash award to the student achieving the highest mark, and the opportunity given to the top students (and their teacher sponsors) to participate in a banquet at the University of Calgary.

Information about registering for this contest will be sent out to Junior High Schools in Calgary and environs in March. Our registration material is not ordinarily sent out to elementary schools, but if an elementary school in or near Calgary has one or more exceptional students who could benefit from our contest, we invite them to enter too.

The Calgary Junior High School Mathematics Contest is sponsored by:
