Held for the first time in 1999, the Spirit of Math Contest was initially offered to grades 1 through 4 Spirit of Math students only.

Since 1999, Spirit of Math has tested the abilities of children globally, through a series of problem solving questions, giving them the chance to put their skills on display, take home a medal, and get their name listed on the Spirit of Math National Honour Roll!

With an increasing number of students participating each year, Spirit of Math students earned 1,550 placements on national and international math competition Honour Rolls for 2015.

In 2018, the contest was opened to non-Spirit of Math students from all over Canada and Pakistan. Amongst all the grades 1 to 4 students that wrote the contest, more than 2,500 students earned placements on the Honour Roll.

In 2019, the 20th Annual Spirit of Math International Contest was written by students in Canada, Pakistan and USA.
