NEWS RELEASE

2020
23rd Annual High School Mathematical Modeling Contest

The Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications (COMAP) is pleased to announce the results of the Twenty-Third Annual High School Mathematical Contest in Modeling (HiMCM). A total of 779 teams, with up to 4 students each, from 302 schools and 20 countries/regions, competed. All teams worked at their own schools within the contest window of November 4-17, 2020. Each high school team chose from two modeling problems offered, and then constructed their solutions.

A Complete Results Report, with designations for all participants, is available in portable document format
