Math Prize for Newton North Girls


On Saturday, September 22, 2012, members of the Newton North High School math team competed in the 4th annual Math Prize for Girls. Girls qualify for this individual exam by earning high scores on the American Math Competition. 260 girls from all across the United States attended this year’s competition.

For the second year in a row, Christina Chen scored in the top ten, earning sixth place this year.

The whole team got a "shout out" on the Math Prize for Girls community blog. Pictured above are math team veterans Ying Gao, Anne Ellison, Christina Chen, and Caroline Ellison.
