Save the date for Shoreline Math Olympiad 2020!

Save the date for the 22nd annual Shoreline Math Olympiad next year on Saturday March 14, 2020 at Shoreline Community College.

The 21st annual Shoreline Math Olympiad was held in March on the beautiful campus of Shoreline Community College. Over 750+ students participated this year from public and private schools in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

It is a free event open to all 4th – 8th grade students who want to challenge themselves with fun individual and team tests in math. Some schools offer math clubs in the fall for students to practice their math skills and other schools offer students the opportunity to just sign up for SMO and participate individually and/or on teams.

This year we welcomed entertainment from Shorecrest JV Hip Hop, the Martial Arts Center ( MAC) and Eric Haines, an amazing one man band!

This event is organized by a group of dedicated volunteers who make up the Shoreline Math Olympiad committee, with the help of community sponsors:

Shoreline School District, Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, Shoreline Mathnasium, James Alan Salon, Menchies Shoreline, Smart Service Shoreline, Spin Alley, Shoreline Chuck Olson Kia Chevrolet, and Shoreline Community College.

Shoreline Math Olympiad awards medals to the top 40% of the individuals participating, and the top 60% of teams participating. The event does not break ties. If there are many award winners starting at 1st place, medals for the top 40% or 40% students will vary. 

Team and Individual Awards will be listed on the website.

Summer is a perfect time to practice for next year's friendly competition and prepare for your school's math club or team. Most schools start clubs in the Fall. You do not need to be a member of a school team or club to participate in Shoreline Math Olympiad.
