No less than 68,000 students from 1087 schools in Quebec and 141 schools in Ontario participated in the contest surrounding Maths Day, culminating on March 14 (Pi Day) with the announcement of the winners.

Each had 30 minutes to answer on the Web or via the Netmaths iPad application, made free for the occasion, to the greatest number of mathematical questions possible, according to their grade level (3rd year of elementary to 4th year of secondary and 4th to 8th grade in Ontario). Each correct answer allowed you to accumulate points for yourself, your class and your school, thus identifying the champions of the challenge.

In Quebec, two participants were randomly selected to assist Dr. Martin Carli in a shoot. The spokesperson for the Math day is a real scientific star among young people and their parents. In 2013, the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec awarded him the Tribute Award for his exceptional contribution to the profession.

The lucky students are:
- Samuel G., 4th year, École Adrien-Guillaume (Chénéville, CS Au Coeur-des-Vallées)
- Maude L., 5th year, École Sainte-Dorothée (Laval, CS de Laval)

In Ontario, the spokespersons are the hosts of the program FLIP, broadcast on TFO. Two students, each accompanied by an adult, were randomly selected from the participants to watch a filming of FLIP.

The lucky students are:
- Jessica E., Grade 6, L'Harmonie Elementary School (Waterloo, Viamonde School Board)
- Meaghan F., 6th year, Don-Bosco Catholic School (Timmins, CSDC des Grandes Rivières)
