Attendees may participate in one or both categories of written exams.

Early bird registration will include free lunch and a t-shirt to the first 100 students who register at http://hwy78math.eventbrite.com. There will also be prizes awarded to the top contestants in each category, as well as a free show at the Palomar College Planetarium following the competition.
