The Ekal 2020 Online Math Bee was held December 18-20, 2020. Over the 3 day period, over 325 participants out of 375 registrants took the competition. Of these, there were test-takers from India, the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Hong Kong, and more. About $2000 were raised for Ekal Vidyalaya thanks to all of the kind participants and donors! This equates to funding over 5 Ekal Vidyalaya schools, educating 150 children, for a year.
The competition consisted of 2 rounds, a 20 minute Speed Round with 15 questions and a 40 minute Challenge Round with 10 questions. There were 4 levels of examination, one for grades 1-2, one for grades 3-5, one for grades 6-8, and one for grades 9-10. The problems were challenging, but all the participants did very well.
Every participant received a certificate of participation, and the top 3 scorers of each grade were given gift cards. December 18-19 was the USA/Canada/Europe/Australia session while December 20 was the India session. Prizes for each session were given separately.
