       Biographies of Contemporary Women in Mathematics
                Deadline: October 29, 2004

  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.
