Choosing a woman to write about: You may want to choose someone you know, such as a mathematics teacher. Alternatively, click on this link to request information about women mathematicians, physicists and engineers in the Upper Valley who have expressed a willingness to be interviewed. To increase the chance of availability, we encourage you to contact the interviewee early. The list may be updated from time to time.

This contest is modeled on the national AWM Essay Contest. We are following the same CONTEST RULES so you may submit your essay to both contests.

Important note: Our regional contest, sponsored by the Dartmouth Mathematics Department, has a submission process different from the national one. To enter both contests, you need to submit your essay to each.
