Awards are presented to students and schools that participate in the annual tournament. Individual students and school teams earn awards by achieving top scores on the test. All Ohio students are eligible for individual student awards and Ohio public and private school teams are eligible for team awards.

Scholarships is a new tournament component that is currently under development. The OCTM Tournament committee is working with several colleges and universities for the purpose of granting scholarships to top scoring students.
