Special recognition goes to Joshua Howard who placed in the top five percent of all participants nationally. He has been invited to compete in the next level of competition, the American Invitational Mathematical Examination. The AIME is a 15 question, 3-hour examination intended to provide further challenge and recognition to students in North America, who have exceptional mathematical ability. This is the third year in a row Joshua has qualified based on his excellent work and we wish him the best of luck as he competes in the AIME!
