Team Competition

The team competition will consist of grade level competitions, one for each grade 5th-8th. Each grade level team will have 2-4 competitors per team. The groups will be given a number of problems to solve as a group. There will be a specified time limit for the completion of the team competition. The top three scoring teams for each grade level will receive awards.


The math team competition will take place on Saturday, February 19th from 8:00-9:30 am. It will be broken into two sections. From 8:00-8:45 am, the 5th and 6th grade teams will be competing. From 8:45-9:30am, the 7th and 8th grade teams will be competing. The location of the competitions will be given at a later date.

How to Participate

All competitors must pre-register on the LEST Registration Form. Each school may enter 1 team (consisting of 2-4 students) per grade level (5th- 8th). For larger schools, please contact the organizers to add additional teams per grade level. Alternates are permitted, but must also be pre- registered. Alternates will only participate if a designated competitor is not able to participate in the competition.
