This website is not meant to be an exhaustive list of math competitions. FCAG is heavily involved with the administration of the AMC 8 and AMC 10 exams. Please use other resources for complete information about math competitions. We do like to cheer on all of our FCPS students. Check out our version of

AMC 8 and AMC 10
FCAG provides the community a service by helping make available the AMC 8 and AMC 10 tests each year. Approximately 1,000 students take the test through FCAG each year. These tests are administered by volunteers across the county. If you would like to volunteer to bring AMC 8 to your elementary or middle school, please email us
Information about the AMC 8 test will be announced via the Yahoo! Discussion Group
The AMC 10 is offered by invitation through FCAG to middle school and other students who achieved an Honor Roll or higher score (19 and up) on the AMC 8, and whose school does not offer the AMC 10. For more information about the AMC 10, see http://www.maa.org/math-competitions/amc-1012

Other Math Competitions
There are other ways to get kids involved in mathematics through competitions. Ask your school about running a National Math Club or MATHCOUNTS Competition Series, or about Continental Math.
Many successful elementary school clubs are run 'centered' on materials produced in large part to train students for competitions. The material is often available for free. MATHCOUNTS
offers a free club program
