The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics has established the Louise Hay Award for Contributions to Mathematics Education, to be awarded annually to a woman at the Joint Prize Session at the Joint Mathematics Meetings every January. The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding achievements in any area of mathematics education, to be interpreted in the broadest possible sense. While Louise Hay was widely recognized for her contributions to mathematical logic and for her strong leadership as Head of the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, her devotion to students and her lifelong commitment to nurturing the talent of young women and men secure her reputation as a consummate educator.

To learn more about Louise Hay, you can read a biography of Louise Hay on the St. Andrews website and an autobiographical article she wrote that was published in the AWM Newsletter. The annual presentation of this award is intended to highlight the importance of mathematics education and to evoke the memory of all that Hay exemplified as a teacher, scholar, administrator, and human being.

The 2024 Hay Award will be presented at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Francisco, CA January 2024. The nomination packet should include:

A one to three page letter of nomination highlighting the exceptional contributions of the candidate to be recognized;

A curriculum vitae of the candidate not to exceed three pages and;

One letter supporting the nomination (For self-nomination please provide one additional letter of support).

Deadline for nominations is May 15, 2023.
