The 31st Annual New Brunswick Mathematics Competition for Grade 7, 8 and 9 will take place on Friday, May 10, 2013.

Nearly 1,200 students from across the province will travel to both the Fredericton and Saint John campuses of the University of New Brunswick and the Moncton, Edmundston and Shippigan campuses of l’Université de Moncton to compete in this year’s competition.
