State Proclamation of MAW

Students and professors from Gettysburg College met with the governor of their state and prompted an official declaration of MAW. The meeting with Pennsylvania's Governor Tom Ridge involved a "photo op" during which the governor chatted with those in attendance and signed a proclamation declaring Mathematics Awareness Week in PA. The proclamation and the pen used to sign it were presented to the group; they plan to set up a permanent exhibit in the Gettysburg math department.

See also the Iowa State Proclamation of MAW, which was set up by the math department at the University of Northern Iowa.

Ohio State University honored 69 of its mathematics majors at an Undergraduate Recognition Ceremony during Mathematics Awareness Week 1996. The program booklet for the ceremony featured the image from the MAW 96 Poster, which was downloaded from this web site.

Mathematics Awareness Month is sponsored each year by the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics to recognize the importance of mathematics through written materials and an accompanying poster that highlight mathematical developments and applications in a particular area.
