Math Talent Quest is an organization ran by high school students that aims to promote enthusiastic exploration of mathematics among young people and to develop problem solving skills that support broad-based learning in mathematics and science. Our focus is on young students (grades 1 - 8) in the interest of inspiring such beginning students to a path of learning in mathematics that will be productive from an early age. Our approach is to provide internet-enabled learning activities and to motivate students with opportunities for national-level competition.

General Structure of the competition:
The first tier of this year's Math Talent Quest is an internet-based competition from March 6th-March 13th covering a variety of math topics at a variety of levels. Awards will be available to students who perform strongly in their local groups.
The second tier will be a period of internet-based learning activities for a select group of students from the first round. These activities will be oriented toward preparing students for a higher-level competition.
The third tier will be the selection of a small number of students who will represent the United States as the national team at the Hua Cup Competition, held in China late July this year. Math Talent Quest covers all off-shore costs for the U.S. Team to compete at the Hua Cup. Math Talent Quest is the only organization authorized to send a US team to this event.
