Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to register for the contests?

The registration fee for enrolling in the Mandelbrot Competition at either the regional or national level is $56, while the cost for participating at both levels is $77. Formerly schools chose between web and mail delivery options, with separate pricing for each option, but the contest is now available solely via download from the website. The Team Play contest will not be offered for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year, during this transition year as we restart the Mandelbrot Competition after a three-year hiatus. In general, there is a separate registration and billing process for each contest.

The coordinator enrolls a school for the Mandelbrot Competition at the Registration page. The coordinator is then sent an email confirming the registration followed shortly thereafter by an electronic invoice as a PDF file, which may be forwarded to a school business office or paid directly by the person registering the school. Note that the registration fee does not need to arrive before a school begins taking the contest.
