MathCounts® is a national enrichment, coaching and competition program that promotes middle school mathematics achievement through grassroots involvement in every U.S. state and territory.
MathCounts is one of the country's largest and most successful education partnerships involving volunteers, educators, industry sponsors and students. President Barack Obama and former Presidents George W. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Reagan have all recognized MathCounts in White House ceremonies. The MathCounts program has also received two White House citations as an outstanding private sector initiative. ESPN has featured Mathletes® in each of the past three National Competitions.
