Introduction

Hang Lung Mathematics Awards is a highly regarded biennial mathematics research competition for secondary school students in Hong Kong. Founded in 2004, Hang Lung Mathematics Awards blazed a trail in secondary school mathematics education, encouraging students to realize their creative potential in mathematics and sciences, and stimulating their passion for intellectual discovery.

Since the inaugural awards in 2004, over 2,400 students have participated in the competition and over 400 research papers were submitted. Hang Lung Mathematics Awards has made a profound impact in nurturing a cadre of young mathematics talents in Hong Kong. Among our earlier winners, many have completed their studies from top universities around the world and are now working in various sectors, such as academia and other professions, and making meaningful contributions to the society.

In 2021, Hang Lung Properties teamed up with one of the world’s top young universities, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as our partner in HLMA’s next stage of development. Under this partnership, Hang Lung Properties donates HK$2.5 million to each competition, of which HK$1 million is set aside as monetary prizes, and the remainder goes towards academic consultancy, assessment process, and administration of the competition, as well as education promotion activities. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology offers tuition scholarships for teachers nominated by the winning schools to enroll in the Master of Science Program in Mathematics for Educators. We would like to thank The Chinese University of Hong Kong, our inaugural academic partner, for their vision and dedication which provided fertile ground for the awards to grow and flourish.

  • To foster an environment and stimulate secondary school students’ interest and creativity in mathematics research;
