- Include representations of real math equations related to the prompt
- Prove the work is created by a middle school student by providing verification from a math professional

- Submit a hard copy, CD, or flash drive to the scholarship address provided on the application
- Deadline for submission is February 7
Up to 150 awards of $1000 will be granted to the winners. This money can be saved for college or used to pay tuition and fees for a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) summer camp. As an added bonus, $1000 will be given to the recipient’s school to be used for math-related programs.
Winning Tips: Scholarships for middle school students are not nearly as popular or as easy to find as traditional scholarships for high school or college students, so there will be much less competition. This means a much better chance of winning for the student who loves math and works hard on this scholarship. Math and the love of math should shine through each part of the PowerPoint presentation with lots of equations and examples that answer the prompt, “how math moves you or the world around you.”
