**History of Middle School Mathematics Competition**

The Delta College Mathematics Division has been hosting the Middle School Mathematics Competition each spring since 1997. The competition is open to area 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Each school chooses the students that will compete by a variety of methods. Many schools use the practice test provided by Delta in the fall of each academic year to aid in this selection. Because this is a regional event, it is limited to students in the Mid-Michigan area, including the counties of Bay, Midland, Saginaw, Isabella, Gratiot, Clinton, Shiawassee, Genesee, Tuscola, Lapeer, Sanilac, St. Clair, Huron, and Clare. Home School students are admitted if they can achieve a score on the pretest that would qualify them for an average school.

The competition consists of a written test taken by students at Delta College. There are activities during the test for family members and teachers, as well as after the test for students, family, and teachers. Awards are given to the top 25 students at each grade level.
