Challenge to Girls to Demonstrate Exceptional Math Talents

Each fall at MIT, nearly 300 young female mathematicians in grade 11 or below compete in Advantage Testing Foundation’s challenging test of mathematical creativity and insight. The goal is to promote gender equity in the STEM professions and to encourage young women with exceptional potential to become mathematical and scientific leaders. On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Advantage Testing Foundation will hold the 12th annual Math Prize for Girls competition, marking the 10th year at MIT. Contestants will come to Cambridge for the weekend, take part in the precontest games night, and celebrate their accomplishments at an awards ceremony featuring a keynote address from an acclaimed figure in mathematics, science, or technology. The Math Prize for Girls awards $50,000 in monetary prizes, including a $25,000 prize for first place.
