High School Students Compete for Scholarships at Annual Math Contest at Wilkes University, March 2

Mastery of math could pay off in big numbers for high school students competing in the 67th Annual High School Mathematics Contest at Wilkes University on March 2. The contest will award top finishers with prizes, including a four-year full-tuition scholarship to Wilkes University for the first-place winners in each division.

Organized by the Luzerne County Council of Teachers of Mathematics (LCCTM), the event will be held in the Stark Learning Center’s Rite Aid Auditorium, starting at 9 a.m.

Only students currently attending schools participating in the council are eligible to compete.  These schools include any high school geographically situated within Luzerne County along with Tunkhannock Area High School. The tests are composed by Steven Gapinski, Fanhui Kong and Ronald Pryor, faculty members from the Wilkes University Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and are administered by participating council teachers. High school students interested in participating must contact a mathematics teacher at their high school.
