MATHCOUNTS 2020 Update
NJ MATHCOUNTS faced a challenging year. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, the 2020 chapter competitions were a rousing success. This year, 138 schools registered including 128 teams and 603 individuals totaling 1,115 participants.
The NJ state competition was scheduled to be held on March 14 at Rutgers University. Sadly, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the national MATHCOUNTS office made the difficult decision to cancel all state competitions. Shortly there after, the national competition was also canceled.
NJ MATHCOUNTS is beginning to plan the 2021 competitions. This process will require sponsors, donations and volunteers. To be placed on the sponsor or volunteer list, please contact Lisa Jones at
