As many students who are interested in the program can participate in a group's club meetings. MATHCOUNTS provides the Club Activity Book, as well as online access to numerous resources, to club leaders so that they have a variety of activities to choose from for each club meeting.

Clubs that complete a creative, collaborative project can achieve Gold Level Status, usually in March. If a club applies for and earns Gold Level Status by the deadline the group will earn a banner, trophy, entry into a $500 prize drawing (5 winners selected) and entry into the Grand Prize Drawing (1 winner selected).

The club leader and students from the club that wins the Grand Prize Drawing attend the National Competition, which takes place in May. These 5 individuals get an all-expenses-paid trip to attend this event as honored guests. The club also receives $500.
