The COMC is open to students in all locations, at all grade levels.
To be considered official participants and to qualify for awards or prizes, participants and schools must meet the following requirements:
Additionally, the participation is only considered official if it is proctored and offered under these rules:
Canadian and International Awards:
All official participants writing from locations in Canada compete for Canadian awards, including the overall national awards, as well as grade-specific and province/region-specific awards.
Official participants writing from locations outside of Canada (for example, USA or UK or China) compete for International awards, which recognize high achievement independent of grade. Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents writing outside Canada compete for the International awards only, not the Canadian awards.
See our Awards page for more details.
All participants consent to allow the CMS to publish their names and schools when announcing competition results, and to allow the CMS to share their performance results with CMS partner universities for consideration of academic scholarships.
