The purpose of the contest is to stimulate interest in mathematics among upper elementary, middle, and high school students and to recognize those who exhibit exceptional talents in mathematical skills. The organizers and sponsors ask teachers and parents to strongly encourage their students and children in grades 4 through 11 to enter this contest.

The contest is part of the annual KSEA National Science and Mathematics Contest. The contest consists of taking grade specific examinations. Entrants will need to bring a pencil with an eraser. Calculators are not permitted.
