General Information

The Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest was sponsored each fall by the Mathematics Department at Virginia Tech. More than 100 colleges and universities throughout VA, DC, GA, IL, MD, NJ, NY, OH, NC, PA, SC, TN, WV and other states were invited to participate each year.

The VTRMC ran for 44 years, starting in 1979, running through 2022. It grew to the point where over 100 schools with over 700 contestants participated in a typical year. Contestants at each participating school took the two and one-half hour exam on their own campus under the supervision of one of their own faculty members. Individuals competed for

  • $950 in regional prizes for which any contestant is eligible, and 
  • $350 in local prizes for which only Virginia Tech students are eligible.

Initially conceived as a regional preliminary contest to the annual national William Lowell Putnam Mathematics Competition, the VTRMC  served that function at a number of participating schools.
