Students are welcome to compete in either or both of the competitions. Competitions have included the following:

The Scholastic competition will consist of a preliminary examination in all science and math areas. The top scoring student in each discipline will then compete in a verbal quiz. The verbal format will be a single elimination discipline bee. When the last two competitors are standing, the answer must be determined by one of the competitors to eliminate the other. The categories for this years scholastic competition include: algebra; geometry; chemistry; biological science; physics and physical science.
