The MATHCOUNTS competition is a fun and challenging math program designed for teams of four U.S. middle school students to increase their academic and professional opportunities. During the program year, MATHCOUNTS coaches provide thought-provoking, non-routine, fun problems to engage, challenge and make each participant a better problem solver. A circuit of exams is given to students at their NSBE Fall Regional Conference, which is held in October or November. The first- and second-place winner from each region competes at NSBE's Annual Convention. Participants are provided access to an online mathematics resource to support their year long learning.

1.) All participants must be a registered student of NVA STEM and active NSBE Jr. member.

2.) Plan to attend the 45th Annual Convention in Detroit, MI.

Try-Math-A-Lon (TMAL) is a yearlong tutoring program meant to foster good study habits for minority students, groom them for success in STEM courses, help prepare them for standardized exams such as the ACT and SAT, and promote healthy competition and good sportsmanship. The TMAL competition is held between teams of four NSBE Jr. members and one alternate. Each team is composed of high school students in grades 9–10 or 11–12.  Participants are provided access to an online mathematics resource to support their yearlong learning. This tool enables students to earn points during the program year, as they engage in various activities. Students with the top scores win prizes. Students compete year round and advance to a culminating event at the national competition, which is held at NSBE’s Annual Convention.
