The American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) offers a two test Power Contest to be worked
on by a team at the students' high school. The Power Contest provides a group problem
solving situation similar to the power question found at ARML Competitions.
The mathematics level of the contest problems has been geared so that
students in an honors class, in a math club, or on a math team can have
a unique problem solving and mathematical writing experience. There is
no limit to the size of the team working on each Power Contest problem
set, but the time for solving the problem set is limited to 45 minutes.
Coaches will receive the contest materials at least one week prior to
contest dates and may schedule the contest anytime during the designated
week and a half. After completing the contest, student solutions are then
mailed back and are graded using a forty point rubric
Trophies are awarded to the top ten scoring teams.

The dates for the 2013-2014 contest are Nov 2–17, 2013 and Jan 25 – Feb 9, 2014.
