  General headings are:

    - Foundations
    - Combinatorics
    - Number Theory
    - Abstract Algebra
    - Geometry
    - Topology
    - Functional Analysis
    - Real Analysis
    - Complex Analysis
    - Numerical Analysis
    - Differential Equations
    - Physics and Other Sciences and Engineering
    - Computers, Information
    - Probability
    - Statistics
    - History

  Four times a year, USA TODAY honors outstanding students and
  educators with the All-USA Academic and Teacher Teams. The
  twenty students and educators selected for the All-USA First
  Teams are featured in a national newspaper. The students
  each receive $2,500 cash awards. Starting in 2003, each
  All-USA Teacher First Team member will receive $500, with
  the balance of the $2,500 award going to the school.

  The All-USA Teacher Team is open to active, full-time,
  certified teachers and instructional teams teaching
  kindergarten to 12th grade at a public or private school in
  the United States or its territories, or Department of
  Defense schools overseas. Teachers must be nominated by
  someone willing to put in writing why the nominee is
  outstanding. Nomination forms for the 2003 All-USA Teacher
  Team will be available in January 2003.
