Each high school may register up to 15 students, with registration to be limited to the first 100 students. The registration deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 5. Students may register online, and find previous questions, answers and solutions, by visiting www.bluffton.edu/math/contest
A complimentary lunch will be provided for students, teachers and parents and campus tours can be scheduled on the same day. A separate program will be offered for parents and teachers who accompany students participants.
