THE 2022 'YOUNG MATHEMATICAL STORY AUTHOR' (YMSA) COMPETITION IS DUE TO BEGIN ON MONDAY 3RD JANUARY 2022!
The YMSA competition has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2019. With over 1,200 students across 17 countries competing over the past three years, this makes the YMSA competition a really special international competition.

The YMSA competition is the world's first annual international competition set up to encourage young mathematics learners (8-15 years old) from around the world to embed their mathematics learning in a meaningful and engaging context through creating their own mathematical story picture book. This competition is organised by MathsThroughStories.org

Entries for the 2022 competition open on Monday 3rd January 2022 and the submission deadline is Friday 25th March 2022 (17:00 UK time).

The winner in each of the two entry categories (8-11 and 12-15 years old) will receive an award of £100, and their school will also receive £100. (In case of homeschooled children, if they won, they would get £100 and their nominated local public library would too get £100.) The awards are generously sponsored by HarperCollins and Charlesbridge.

The winning and shortlisted entries from the previous years can be found here: 2019, 2020 and 2021.

We very much look forward to receiving YMSA entries from many more students across many more countries in 2022!
