N2K Contest is about to Begin

This year’s Scouting Board will be available on February 1st for Prime Advantage Members and on February 8th for the general public. Once the board is released, please print a copy and begin practicing with your students.

How to Enter

  1. The video must be no longer than ninety seconds.
  2. The video must begin with an adult introducing the student by stating the student’s name and age.
  3. The student must roll three dice in the video and immediately play the specified game variation for sixty seconds. The rolled dice must be shown in the video. Although not required, it is helpful to the judges to show the board after the student has played.
  4. The video must end with the adult reading the following statement: “I, [adult’s name], grant National Number Knockout the right to use this video to promote N2K.”
  5. The video must be uncut and unedited.
  6. Students must state all problems clearly. Only clearly articulated problems will be counted by judges towards a student’s final score. Please double check your student’s submission for clarity before submitting it.


For the complete set of rules, please visit our 2019 N2K Rules Book.

How are Submissions Judged?

Each submission is judged by our team of N2K judges. Judges view each video, write down each problem a student states, and then checks each equation for accuracy. If a judge is unable to understand an equation, a student is not given credit for that number. After carefully checking all videos, the 16 competitors with the highest scores will be selected as competitors in the 2019 National Number Knockout competition.
