The mathematics department has held an annual Mathematics Competition — with cash prizes, scholarship eligibility and bragging rights on the line — for high school students since 2002.
The contest is open to any high school student. In 2013, the 12th annual contest brought 75 high school students to Bluffton's campus.
- $40 each to top two scores overall
- $20 and $15 to first and second seniors
- $20 and $15 to first and second juniors
- $20 to the top sophomore
- $20 to the top first-year student
- $15 to the second place sophomore or first year
- $10 each to all other students in the top 15
Note: Award amounts are not added together. If, for example, a senior has the top score overall, then she or he will receive $40, and the second place senior will receive $15 (unless he or she had the second-place score overall).
In addition to the cash prizes, $500 and $1,000 Bluffton University scholarships (renewable for four years) will be offered to seniors with high contest scores. Scholarship awards for the 2014 contest will be offered by January 2015.
