The American Regions Mathematics League sponsors an independent mathematics competition, not connected directly with OCTM.  OCTM does support the Ohio team (top scorers from OHMIO -- see above) as it travels to ARML each year, and the Ohio coaches are involved with OHMIO.  To learn more about ARML, visit their website here. If any questions should arise, please contact Michael Curry from ARML at
