Competitors, who can enter individually, or as a school, are allowed to play up to 50, 60-second challenges, with each correct answer earning a point for the Spelling and Math Challenges. For the Science Challenge competitors will be able to accrue 2 points for each question if they tackle the difficult ones.

Though the competition is on for for the entire two days, contestants can log in and out and take as many breaks as they wish - Their scores will be stored by the site, allowing them to continue where they left off, each time. To ensure that every one gets a chance to win the coveted title, the contest pool is divided into four age categories: 4-7, 8-10,11-13 and 14-18.
