This is the ninth anniversary of the Math Medal Awards, presented by the Honda-Ohio State Partnership, a university-industry partnership that supports programs in education and research to benefit the transportation industry. This year 136 seniors received the award. The Central Ohio Region Math Medal Award event was held Nov. 1 at Honda of America in Marysville to honor top math students from 15 area counties. The scholars were joined by family members, teachers and friends to receive their math medal.
Recognized as their school’s top math student in the Class of 2013, each student received a pewter math medal, plaque and $100 gift card from Honda of America Manufacturing and Ohio State University’s College of Engineering.
In addition, the math medal award comes with a $3,000 scholarship opportunity at Ohio State’s College of Engineering for the 2013-14 academic year. Over the past eight years, more than 70 central Ohio region Math Medal recipients have gone on to receive the $3,000 scholarship at Ohio State’s College of Engineering.
”We are pleased to recognize these outstanding math students for their academic achievements,” said David B. Williams, dean, Ohio State College of Engineering. “We hope this award encourages these students to put their talents to use in a career in engineering and to further their education at Ohio State.”
