following paper contest interesting and would like to participate.


HOM SIGMAA Student Paper Contest in the History of Mathematics.

The HOM SSIGMAA is please to announce its 5th annual writing contest for
undergraduates. The contest encourages undergraduates to conduct research
into the history of mathematics and write expository articles. Winning
papers are posted on the HOM SIGMAA website and on Convergence! Winners

the MAA bookstore.

Any undergraduate is welcome to submit a paper, on any topic in the
history of mathematics. Judging is done by a panel of HOM members.
Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2008.
