Welcome to the 5th Annual Arkansas State 5th Grade Math Tournament!
The competition is Saturday, January 23rd, with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. We’re looking forward to a great tournament this year, even though it has to be virtual. We’ve put together a brief checklist for the competition. Please see the instructions below, and we’ll have a great time (virtually) together.
Technology Note: Many schools, LISA is among them, restrict student email accounts from receiving emails from outside sources. For this reason, we have sent all sponsors who registered an email with a link to this page, and we will be using ZOOM and Google Forms to conduct the exam. Students will log in to the ZOOM link below and join the conference between 9:30 and 9:45 to begin.
