Regional Test Site Coordinators are reminded that the location of a student's school dictates which state finals test site they go to. Whichever NCCTM region the school belongs to is the site to which the student should go.
What: State High School Math Contest Finals - Central Region

University of North Carolina at Greensboro
1000 Spring Garden Street
Greensboro, NC 27402
(See enclosed map of Greensboro.)
Parking: For cars the parking is at the Parking Deck on Walker Ave. See the parking services page for prices and more information. If you park in any of the campus parking lots or on the street you may get towed. For those coming by bus or other large transport (anything taller than 7'4"), you will probably need to park in the UNCG park and ride near the Coliseum. This will depend largely on the number of buses. Under no circumstances will the buses be allowed to park in the parking deck - you may get stuck and damage your bus. The UNCG shuttles run every 15 minutes starting at 7:00 AM.
