**Notable Prizes in Mathematics to Aim for**

"It is in dreaming the greatest dreams, seeking the highest goals that we build the brightest tomorrows."

To be great in the field of Mathematics is a long-term goal. You need years of preparation to achieve it. As they say, no worthy endeavor is ever easy. Set your eyes on a long-term goal so you know where you are going. So that every move you make is always a step closer to it. Below are some of the most prestigious awards in the field of Mathematics. Unlike in the field of Science, there is no Nobel Prize in mathematics. However, some mathematicians won the Nobel Prizes in a different field, such as Economics. Prominent prizes in mathematics include:

- the Abel Prize,
- the Chern Medal,
- the Fields Medal,
- the Gauss Prize,
- the Nemmers Prize,
- the Balzan Prize,
- the Crafoord Prize,
- the Shaw Prize,
- the Steele Prize,
- the Wolf Prize,
- the Schock Prize,
- and the Nevanlinna Prize.

**Solve the $1,000,000 Millenium Math Question**

Want to land in history and earn $1,000,000 for solving the Millennium Prize Problems of Math? There are seven (7) Millennium Prize Problems in mathematics that were stated by the Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000. As of July 2013, six of the problems remain unsolved. If you think that your Math skills are above average, check on these problems and try solving it. It can be a worthwhile activity after your day's work. It may take years before you can finalize your solution but at least you have something to look forward to. Who knows after several months or years you may solve it. Should you win the prize, please do not reject the prize money. Donate it to charity or support Mathizen members’ events instead. The money will be better spent when used to help others than sitting in the bank account of Clay Institute. *Good luck Mathizen member on your well-meaning and lifelong endeavor!*

# Math Inspirations

In our quest for excellence, we always have people whom we admire most and whom we want to emulate. By knowing the lives of the great people, we are inspired to follow their footsteps. We are listing here the great mathematicians as well as notable individuals who excel in the field of mathematics so members can learn from them. Who knows, someday, one of our members or maybe even a lot of our members will become great mathematicians too in the future.
