Update (10/12/2022) - Guest Speaker: Prof. Po-Shen Loh!

This year, the Rickards Invitational will have Professor Po-Shen Loh from Carnegie Mellon University as our guest speaker! A previous International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) Silver Medalist, he now coaches the USA IMO team. He also founded the educational website Expii, the revolutionizing video teaching infrastructure LIVE, and also developed a pandemic-response app called NOVID. 


The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational is one of the largest competitions in the Southeast, generally with over 1,000 competitors from over 45 elementary, middle, and high schools. This year the Invitational will be held in-person on Saturday, November 12th, 2022.


To expand our competition, we are incorporating a nationwide mail-in division this year. Schools may register to compete online from anywhere in the country. After the tests have been taken, the schools will send in PDF files of their scantrons and results will be displayed at an online ceremony at a later time. Awards for mail-in will be in a separate division than in-person.

Please read the Competition Handbook pertaining to your level, included below, for further details on the updated format, and send any inquiries you have to our email at
