Stilwell earns Math School of Merit Award

Students across the country and in U.S. territories and at military bases around the world take part in the Mathematics Association of America’s AMC8 competition each year on the third Tuesday of November. At Stilwell, 49 students completed the competition this year. Stilwell is one of only four schools in Iowa to receive the honor of being named an MAA School of Merit. The Mathematic Association of America uses the top three scores from the competitors at a school to calculate the school’s merit score, which must fall between 50 and 65 to receive the School Merit Award. The students with the top three scores at Stilwell were: first, James Meng; second, Minhyuk Lee; third, Andy Waters. Congratulations to these three students and all the participants.
