Excellence in Math Competition

We look forward to seeing you at the Forest Park campus in November 2024!

Excellence in Mathematics Competition

The Excellence in Math contest has been a tradition for over 50 years at STLCC-Forest Park. High school students from around the region gather to solve challenging mathematics problems and celebrate a love for mathematics.

The 2024 Excellence in Mathematics Competition will take place in the fall of 2024 on the Forest Park campus.


  • Teams are partitioned into two divisions for each grade level, freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior, based on the size of the high school.
  • A maximum of ten students per grade level may participate from each high school.
  • Individual and team awards will be given to the top students and teams in each division.
  • A team will consist of four scorers from each category.


Registration will open in October 2024.

There is no longer a registration fee for schools sending ten or less students. For any school that wishes to send more than ten students (up to a maximum of 40: ten per grade level), the fee will be $5 total.

Please email fpmathcontest@stlcc.edu or call 314-644-9064 or 314-644-9093 (TDD) if you have any questions.


Participants must be present at the awards ceremony to claim any scholarships or awards. College scholarships are awarded to the top performing senior participants in each division.
