St. Charles Community College, in cooperation with Great Plains Math League, is hosting the 16th annual high school math tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 9, in the Administration Building.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. in the Student Center Café. There will be a lunch break at 12:30 p.m. The awards ceremony starts at 2 p.m. in the Student Center Café.

The tournament consists of high school students in grades nine, 10, 11 and 12.

Students can come alone or in a group. The winners will receive awards/ribbons.

“We are entering our 16th year of St. Charles Community College hosting the area math tournament. It is a great time to be involved and compete,” said Joe Howe, SCC mathematics professor. “We always look forward to this event and seeing students enjoying and pursing mathematics.” 

The tournament will have free doughnuts, coffee and juice for everyone, starting at 8 a.m. in the Student Center. There are also free giveaways to all participating students. Coaches will receive a $10 gift card while supplies last.
