The King’s College Mathematics Department recently sponsored a competition involving more than 110 students from nine local high schools and faculty representatives from each school.

Participating students took part in both individual and team competitions.  The first place winner for the individual competition received a $1,500 scholarship to King’s renewable annually based on good academic standing.  The second place winner for the individual competition received a $1,000 scholarship to King’s renewable annually. One student from each participating high school was named “top finisher.”  Each of those students received a $500 scholarship to King’s renewable annually.
