                   AWM ESSAY CONTEST
    Biographies of Contemporary Women in Mathematics
              Deadline: November 1, 2001

  To increase awareness of women's ongoing contributions to 
  the mathematical sciences, the Association for Women in 
  Mathematics (AWM) is sponsoring an essay contest: 
  "Biographies of Contemporary Women Mathematicians." The 
  essays will be based primarily on an interview with a woman 
  currently working in a mathematical sciences career, whether 
  academic, industrial, or governmental. 

  This contest is open to students in the following categories: 
  Middle School, High School, Undergraduate, and Graduate. At 
  least one winning submission will be chosen from each 
  category. Winners will receive a prize, and their essays will 
  be published online at the AWM web site. Additionally, a 
  grand prize winner will have his or her submission published 
  in the AWM Newsletter.

  discussing the math background and job of a professional 
  working in industry, and how that person uses math at work.
