GOLD LEVEL STATUS
The highest level of recognition in the National Math Club awarded to clubs who complete a Gold Level Project.
Yes. You must meet the Silver Level requirements of a minimum of five club meetings, in person or virtual, in addition to completing the Gold Level Project. However, you may attest to this on the Gold Level Application when submitting your Gold Level Project evidence and application together.
MY CLUB HAS MORE THAN (OR FEWER THAN) 12 STUDENTS, BUT THERE IS ROOM FOR 12 STUDENT SIGNATURES ON THE GOLD LEVEL APPLICATION. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Your club is required to have a minimum of 4 students. As long as your form has 4 student signatures, your club’s application will be accepted. If you have more than 12 students, you may attach the additional student signatures to your application.
Yes. You must submit evidence that the Gold Level Project was completed. The type of evidence submitted will depend on the final format of your club’s project. Applications without this evidence included will not be considered for Gold Level Status.
The type of evidence will depend on the form of the club’s final presentation and the project option selected. This could include a physical or electronic copy of the project. In some instances, a video or photos of the project may be more appropriate. More information can be found at www.mathcounts.org/clubleaders. If you need help determining how to document your club’s project, please email [email protected].
To guarantee your club will receive all prizes, as well as entry into the Gold Level drawings, MATHCOUNTS must receive your application and evidence by 11:59pm ET on April 7, 2023. MATHCOUNTS will continue to accept applications until 11:59pm ET on June 2, 2023, but pencils and banners will be distributed only while supplies last after April 7, 2023.
The application and evidence of the Gold Level Project should be received by MATHCOUNTS together. Therefore, if you are sending an electronic copy of the project, please include a scanned copy of the application. If you are mailing in a copy of the project, please include your application in that mailing (and keep photocopies of what you mail for your own records).
If your club chooses to complete a video for the Math Video Challenge as their Gold Level Project, the Team Advisor must register for the Math Video Challenge program and submit the video through the Video Advisor Dashboard. Videos will only be accepted through the MATHCOUNTS website. Videos emailed as attachments or shared through any online platform such as Google Drive will not be accepted. Be sure to include your submitted video’s title on your Gold Level Application, so that we know which video was created by your club.
It takes up to 10 business days for MATHCOUNTS to process a Gold Level Application once it is received. If you do not hear from MATHCOUNTS about the status of your Gold Level Application within two weeks of submitting it, please email [email protected] to make sure your application and any accompanying materials were received.
