Have you ever wondered where all those bright Mathletes go after the competition? Well, some of them return to help out the California competitions in following years, even those who participated as Mathletes in other states.
This picture of former Mathletes who volunteered at the Northern California State Competition at Stanford University gives a snapshot of how much value the Mathletes place in the program and the nationwide span of its reach.
MATHCOUNTS is a life-changing program that Mathletes remember and benefit from for the rest of their lives.
