The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational

Saturday, November 21, 2020


The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational is one of the largest competitions in the Southeast, with over 1,000 competitors from 49 elementary, middle, and high schools last year. This year will be the first ever virtual conduction of the Invitational and will be held on Saturday, November 21st, 2020.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has halted and changed the way the world operates in a matter of months. Through these chaotic times, we feel it is as, if not more, important than ever to continue to foster the math competition culture. In our efforts to emulate our typical competition format, ensuring the preparations of students are not drastically changed, we have been forced to modify our traditional procedures. Unfortunately, this year's competition will only be available for middle and high school students. Please read the Competition Handbook included below and the Invitation for details on the updated format. This year, we will require that your students have a Gmail account, computer with camera, and either Chrome or Firefox.

Registration is now open! If you would like to register your school for this year's Invitational, visit the Registration page and fill out the form with your schools information. Registration will be available until Monday, November 16th. 

This year the Invitational will be limited to 1,200 students. Please see the Invitation for more details.  

More information about this year's competition will be posted soon. Please contact us at if you have any questions.
