If you were awarded a PME Lectureship, Conference, or Prize Grant within the past year, please briefly describe the results.
We were awarded a Prize Grant. We usually give out $500 in prizes to students (7 sophomore awards and 2-3 senior awards). This allowed us to give out $600 students and we recognized an outstanding sophomore!
