MAT Poster Competition 2018: 'Take a chance on Maths'

We are seeking posters from students of all ages (K - 12) that are inspired by the MAT Conference 2018 theme of 'Take a chance on Maths'. 

Posters can be digital or hand-drawn and can include words, images and/or symbols (make sure that you use and acknowledge appropriately any information and images copied from the internet or books). Entry is FREE but is restricted to Tasmanian students. There are voucher prizes on offer.

In 2018, all entries must be emailed to Mr. Nathan Peterson: (hand-drawn posters should be photographed and the file attached to the email). Please name the file with the student's full name and year level (e.g. "Nathan Peterson - Year 6") or make this clear in the body of your email. Entries must be received no later than 3pm on 17th July 2018 (expect a response from Mr. Peterson within 24 hours - please email your poster through again if this has not happened).
