SigmaCamp 2023 - Recommendation letters

If you are a returning student, you are not required to submit letters of recommendation – we already know who you are!

For new students: Obtain two letters of recommendation – one from a Mathematics or Science teacher and one from an adult who knows you personally (not a family member). This may be a family friend, a music teacher, an athletics coach, a chess coach, etc. Winners of the Problem of the Month contest who have been notified by email do not need to obtain letters of recommendation.

Print out the recommender's instructions below, fill your name and ID number, and give (or email) them to the people you are asking for the recommendation. They can return the letters to you in a sealed envelope, send their recommendation by email to, or submit their recommendation online using the form below.

Instructions for recommenders:
Personal Recommendation Form
Teacher Recommendation Form

Recommenders can use the form below to submit recommendation letters for students applying to SigmaCamp. You will need to know the student's registration ID number - the student should have given it to you when asking for the recommendation letter.

Must be given to you by the student. If unknown, leave blank.
Please upload your letter as a file in PDF or Word format.
