Clay Olympiad Scholar Award
The Clay Olympiad Scholar Award is given for the solution to an Olympiad problem judged most creative. It consists of a plaque and cash award to the recipient, and a cash award to the recipients' school. It is presented each year at the official awards dinner for the US American Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO) held in June in Washington, DC at the State Department Ballroom.
The USAMO is a two day, nine hour, six question, essay-proof examination which is one of a series of national contests administered by the American Mathematics Competitions and sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and several other organizations.
