Registration Opens in Fall for Modeling the Future Challenge

Sponsored by the Actuarial Foundation, the Modeling the Future Challenge competition presents a modeling problem whose solution involves mathematics and statistics.

Teams must be composed of one to five high-school juniors and seniors. Finalists are invited to the Modeling the Future Symposium, where they present their mathematical models to a judging panel for the chance to win one of four scholarships totaling $60,000. Schools are also eligible for special awards. Registration begins in September, and entries are due in mid-November.

There are two webpages discussing different aspects of this competition: the challenge and how the challenge works. Also, view the timeline for the competition.
