Annual Math Contest

The second floor lobby of the SASE building.

Show off your math skills, compete for your school, and make new friends at D’Youville’s annual high school math contest.

Each year D’Youville proudly welcomes high school students from around Buffalo to compete head-to-head and school vs. school in our annual math contests through a partnership with MathLeague.Org.

As a participant, D’Youville will host you and your team on campus at our School of Science, Arts and Education building. You’ll compete in five rounds of questions with a dinner break provided by D’Youville in the middle, meet other students, and celebrate your success with an awards ceremony at the end of the day.

We look forward to meeting you and hosting you for this exciting event.
