Mathworks Math Modeling (M3) Challenge

Mathworks Math Modeling (M3) Challenge is a mathematical modeling contest for U.S. high school juniors and seniors (for full eligibility rules, visit the site). Through participation, students gain the experience of working in teams to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints akin to those faced by industrial applied mathematicians. The Challenge is organized by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and awards $100,000 in scholarships each year. Registration often closes in February. The Challenge is entirely Internet-based with no registration or participation fees.
