The 2021 NGMT is organized by the Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas, Coral Academy of Science Reno, RootSTEM Academy, and Northern Nevada Math Club to promote mathematics interest among female students. This is part of a general goal to strengthen math culture among all layers of students in the USA.
We strongly believe that we must encourage more girls' engagement in STEM-related activities that is why we are organizing the Nevada Girls' Math Tournament. This contest has been running in southern Nevada for 4 years for grades 3-8 and, as it enters its 5th year, it is expanding to all of Nevada and all grades 1-12.
This free event is open to all girls in 1st - 12th grades from the public, charter, private, or home schools in Nevada but you MUST register before May 11th.
Participants will take the test that will be proctored by their parents or other adult aged 18 or older at their homes. The test will include 25 questions and should be completed in one hour (grades 1 & 2 will be split into two 30-minute sections). The tournament window will be open from May 12th at 8 am to May 18th at 8 pm.
Individual winners will get medals and certificates will be given to all those who place in the top 20% of their division.
Note: All high school students (9th -12th) will compete in one category; High School
