The seventh annual All Girls Math Tournament was held on Sunday, April 24th, 2016. This year, the tournament expanded from having 2 locations to having 5 different locations across California and Nevada: the main location being Laguna Niguel, and four satellites being Cypress, Cupertino, Las Vegas, and San Diego. With all these locations, we were able to serve over 600 girls and provide opportunities for more than 70 volunteers.
Several of the tournament locations invited guest speakers to the event in order to talk to the participants about how math had helped them in their respective careers and how important it is for more females to be represented in math fields. In addition, the team round was replaced with an activity round in an effort to make the competition more interactive.
Over the next year, All Girls Math Tournament is becoming its own organization as a branch of Math for Service. Under the leadership of President Natalie Yee, we are expanding to reach all over the nation and establish more satellites. is hoping to be able to inspire even more girls to pursue math.
