Celebrating Young Talented Women in Mathematics
Each year around 300,000 students complete the American Mathematics Competition. Emphasizing a more inclusive community of young mathematicians, the top achieving young women in each region are recognized.
We are so proud to announce that this year four Stevenson students have scored on their respective exams among the top 5 young women in Illinois and have received recognition by the Mathematical Association of America!

  • Angela Guo received the Maryam Mirzakhani AMC 10A award for achieving one of the top 5 scores in Illinois on the AMC 10A.
