In-School Participation:

  • Schools register online by the deadline.
  • As many teams of six students as desired may write the contest for a single $50 fee.
  • In-school teams participate unofficially.
  • The day before the contest, we provide access to a web site where you can download the contest materials and instructions. The supervisor then photocopies the materials and administers the contest at the school. All questions are graded on an answer only basis.
  • The supervisor may be a teacher, administrator or another adult volunteer.
  • Supervisors may invite students from another school to join them at their own school for this event.
  • Instructions for running the event (subject to change). If you run the event with a large number of teams and are encouraging competition between those teams, you may wish to have a coach supervise each team, at least for the Relay Event. If you have a few teams and are emphasizing fun and fair competition, you may adapt the supervision arrangements to be less formal.

At-UW Participation:

  • Schools register online by the deadline.
  • There are a limited number of spaces. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. When you register, if you are not directed to the waiting list, then your registration secures a spot for your team. If there are already schools in the waiting list, then your registration adds you to the waiting list.
  • There is a limit of one team per school. 
  • A $330 fee includes lunch and dinner for the teacher and six students. For no extra cost you have the option of also having other students write CTMC at your school after the At-UW contest date.
  • Payment will be accepted by invoice only. Invoices will be generated just after the registration deadline.
  • Payment is due by Tuesday, March 20, 2018.
  • Teams must arrange and pay for their own transportation to UW. Some registered teams make their own arrangements for joint transportation. No overnight accommodations are available on campus. We can recommend nearby hotels.
  • It is not necessary to provide student names or dietary information to secure the spot. Teachers may finalize the line-up up to the date of the contest without notifying us.
  • Do you have more than six students at your school interested in the CTMC? For no extra charge, schools participating At-UW may also run the CTMC in your school after the At-UW event for as many different teams as you wish.
