Chauvenet Prize

The Chauvenet Prize is the highest award for mathematical expository writing. It consists of a prize of $1,000 and a certificate, and is awarded yearly by the Mathematical Association of America in recognition of an outstanding expository article on a mathematical topic.[2] The prize is named in honor of William Chauvenet and was established through a gift from J. L. Coolidge in 1925.[3] The Chauvenet Prize was the first award established by the Mathematical Association of America.[3]
