Capital Region middle school students compete in the fast-paced Countdown Round of the MATHCOUNTS regional qualifying competition Saturday afternoon at GE's Global Research Center in Niskayuna.

The MATHCOUNTS Competition Series is the only competition program of its kind, with live, in-person events in all 50 states, as well as U.S. territories and schools worldwide through the U.S. Department of Defense and State Department. Competitions take place in over 500 local chapters. The CDCNYSSPE hosts their competition yearly, the 1st Saturday in February, at the GE Global Research Center in Niskayuna, NY.

The Competition Series is ideal for students who have a talent and passion for math who need to be challenged. Students will engage in exciting, "bee-style" contests in which they will compete against and alongside other bright, motivated students. At the local, state and national level, students win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes every year.

Students enrolled in the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade are eligible to participate in the MATHCOUNTS Competition Series. Participation in MATHCOUNTS competitions is limited to (3) years for each student, though there is no limit to the number of years a student may participate in the school based coaching phase.

Schools can register up to (10) students who will represent the school at the CDCNYSSPE Competition. All types of schools - public, private, charter, virtual and homeschools - are eligible to register for the Competition Series
