The top school/team (made up of the same 5 students) from each state will be advance to the National Championship quiz. The highest scoring school/team (made up of the same 5 students) will receive the National Automath Challenge trophy.

Rounds Explained

There are three rounds and each round has one 10 question quiz. Quizzes are multiple-choice, automatically scored, and ranked on the CKSF website.

The Challenge Round: (Level 1 Questions) Every high school student in the country may participate. Each school’s top 5 scoring students are automatically advanced to the State Championship Round.
The State Championship Round: (Level 2 Questions) Every school from the Challenge Round is represented, even if it only had one participant. The overall highest scoring student wins a $250 scholarship. The top scoring school from each state is declared the State Champion and is automatically advanced to the National Championship Round.
The National Championship Round: (Level 3 Questions) Each State Champion school represents their entire state at this level. The top scoring school is declared the National Champion and receives the trophy for their school.
NOTE: There is no scholarship money awarded for the National Championship Round – this is strictly the team competition for the National Championship trophy.

The program is available twice this school year, in October and February.
