has a new online feature, a zip code search. Thezip code search
shows schools participating in the AMC contests in a specific area. This is especially useful for students whose own school does not participate in the competitions, home-schooled students looking for testing locations, and institutions of higher learning that are interested in hosting the contests. Encourage schools and teachers in your area to participate in the AMC contests if they are not already. Encourage your department, college, or university to participate and offer the contests to interested andhigh-achieving students.Visit AMC online to discover participating schools in your area!
