The competition is a team competition and every primary and secondary school in Dudley is invited to take part. The competition is divided into four categories, Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4, Years 5 and 6 and Years 7 to 13.
Each team must have a minimum of four and a maximum of five participants with the top four scores going towards the team total. Teams can be the same gender or mixed with any combination.
