The MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is a national program that provides students the opportunity to compete in live math contests against and alongside their peers. Typically, these competitions are conducted as in-person events, but just for this year, MATHCOUNTS has decided to conduct all levels except for the National Competition virtually. 

The 2020-2021 Competition Series will have 4 levels of official competition - chapter, chapter invitational, state and national - and 4 unofficial online practice competitions.
