ARML, HMMT, Math Prize for Girls, PUMaC, Math Kangaroo, MathCounts, just to name a few.
What is needed and what we invite you to sponsor is a
new kind of math intensive event that inspires girls' interest in
mathematics and is, in effect, an anti-competition!
SUMiT began life as an in-house event at Girls' Angle. At the end of
every semester, club members would be presented with a big present for
all their good efforts. The catch: the presents were wrapped in a box

collection of math problems. Having designed 8 such treasure hunts,
Girls' Angle has the experience to create a fun math-intensive event
that involves all skill levels in a collaborative effort to achieve a
Together with MIT's Undergraduate Society of Women in Mathematics, we
are ready to take the treasure hunt out of Girls' Angle to a wider
audience. Beginning with the Greater Boston Area, we hope to establish
an annual event that eventually has a national reach.
By sponsoring this event, you will be helping to encourage girls to
further their study of mathematics by joining in the creation of an
inspiring mathematical experience. Even more, you will be showing your
interest in advancing the principles of cooperation and collaboration
Please join us in this effort to build a new paradigm for
non-competitive, highly-collaborative math intensive events by becoming
From your company, we are requesting donations for prizes,
