Criteria for Putnam Winners and Modeling Contest Presentations
The participant with the highest score among those whose (family)
residence and school are in the Section will be the Putnam Winner from the Section.
If no section resident attending a school in the Section is among the
ranked participants in a given year's competition, then the highest ranking
participant from a school in the Section will be the Putnam Winner from the Section.
If no ranked participant attends a school in the Section, then the
highest ranking participant whose (family) residence is in the section will be
the Putnam Winner from the Section.
To be eligible to receive the prize for the Section, the Putnam Winner
(or a member of her/his immediate family) must attend the Spring Meeting to
receive the award; otherwise the prize goes to the next highest ranking
participant who satisfies criteria A through C.
The Section prize for the Putnam Winner is $100.
Modeling Contest Presentations/Awards
All Meritorious teams from schools in the Section will be invited to
receive awards for presenting their solution at the Spring Meeting. If all
such teams chose their problem from the same Mathematical Contest in Modeling
category - Continuous ("A") or Discrete ("B") - then Honorable Mention teams
from the other category will be invited to receive awards for presenting
their solutions at the meeting.
To be eligible to receive a section award, team presentations must
include at least two members of the team.
The Section prize for Meritorious and Honorable Mention Teams
varies according to the number of such teams presenting their solutions.
However, the prize for Meritorious Teams is 150% of that for Honorable Mention
Teams, and all should be multiples of six.
