Certified teachers grade each worksheet submitted for each entry. A child’s score is calculated based on the most number of correct answers combined with the shortest amount of time to complete the worksheet. The score is added to a leaderboard using a nickname selected by the parent or legal guardian during the registration. The winner is chosen based on the performance (a combination of the most number of correct answers and the shortest amount of time to complete).

Parents or legal guardians of potential winners will be notified by email at the end of the Contest based on Scores as calculated and exhibited on the leaderboard.
