Math Counts Video Challenge


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 4

The Math Video Challenge is a project-based team contest that is completely free. Students work in teams of 4 to create a video that shows a solution to a MATHCOUNTS problem in a real-world setting. The program is designed to be flexible so teams can work on videos anytime between the fall (when registration opens) and the submission deadline. Videos are evaluated based on 5 criteria:

1) Mathematical Content: Is an appropriate approach to solving the problem used? Are there any errors?

2) Communication: Is the math communicated clearly and logically? Is time in the video used effectively?

3) Creativity: Is the video's concept original or memorable? Does the video show imagination?

4) Real-World Scenario: Does the video present a clear, real-world application of math concepts in the problem?

5) Adherence to Rules: Is the video 5 minutes or less? Does it follow rules regarding copyrighted material (like music, images or video clips)? Did the students do the work themselves?
