ETHS is one of just a couple schools in the country to have both its teams in the Moody's Mega Math Challenge make the first cut and stay in the running for scholarships. Congratulations to Rebecca Conover, Micaela Homer, Rachel Kornbluh, Jordan Rosen-Kaplan, and Taylor Sims; and Benedict Brady, Emma Chanen, Justin Liao, Nikolai Lenney, and Henry McDonald. These teams are part of the top 200 in the country, with nearly 1200 submitted papers this year.
And then, just today, we found out that the team of Rebecca Conover, Micaela Homer, Rachel Kornbluh, Jordan Rosen-Kaplan, and Taylor Sims were one of only three schools in Illinois (the others being from Stevenson and Kaneland) to be rated nationally. This team is an Honorable Mention team, which only 5% of all teams nationally attain. They will split a $1000 scholarship for their efforts. Congrats to both teams for a job well done!
