Elementary School Level Contest Details

Sunshine STEM Academy is pleased to announce that we will be hosting MathLeague.org math contest for students in grades 3 through 6 on Saturday Mar 12, 2016. Testing will consist of Sprint, Target, Number Sense, and Team rounds.


The contest will be held at Sunshine STEM Academy in Alpharetta, and the cost will be $15 per student. However, a discounted rate of $12 will apply to participants who prepay their registration fees online. The approximate schedule will be as follows:

  • 01:30 PM Check in
  • 02:00 PM Testing begins
  • 04:30 PM Break
  • 05:00 PM Tiebreakers and awards


Please note that at some of our larger contests (particularly in the Bay Area), the awards ceremony typically starts as much as half an hour later than listed. This is largely a function of how many students neglect to prepay their entry fees and must check in manually on site. By prepaying your entry fees you help us start earlier AND you don't run a risk of your registration being canceled if the contest reaches capacity. In situations where a contest sells out, some students who have not prepaid may be notified before the registration deadline that their registration has been canceled in order to make room for students who are prepared to prepay their registrations.


The contest is located at 1675 Hembree Rd. (Sunshine STEM Academy) in Alpharetta; a map and directions are available here.


Prizes will be given to the top students in each grade level, as well as to the top teams. Students are expected to bring their own pencils and calculators.


Every group of up to 12 students that registers for the contest must be accompanied by an adult sponsor who is willing to help proctor or grade tests (this sponsor should be designated on the registration form). Parents can register individual students and serve as sponsors if necessary, but we recommend that parents check to see if there is anyone else at the school who is planning to attend before registering an individual student.

Please note that at some of our larger contests (particularly in the Bay Area), the countdown round typically starts as much as half an hour later than listed. This is largely a function of how many students neglect to prepay their entry fees and must check in manually on site. By prepaying your entry fees you help us start earlier AND you don't run a risk of your registration being canceled if the contest reaches capacity. In situations where a contest sells out (for instance, most of our Bay Area contests sell out a few days before registration closes), some students who have not prepaid may be notified before the registration deadline that their registration has been canceled in order to make room for students who are prepared to prepay their registrations.


The contest is located at 1675 Hembree Rd. (Sunshine STEM Academy) in Alpharetta; a map and directions are available here.


Prizes will be given to the top students in each grade level, as well as to the top teams. Students are expected to bring their own pencils and calculators.


Every group of up to 24 students that registers for the contest must be accompanied by an adult sponsor who is willing to help proctor or grade tests (this sponsor should be designated on the registration form). Parents can register individual students and serve as sponsors if necessary, but we recommend that parents check to see if there is anyone else at the school who is planning to attend before registering an individual student.
