  • The 1991 David Hilbert Awards were presented on the basis of quite different criteria than later years, that of having written the most interesting articles written in the previous years' volumes of the WFNMC Journal "Mathematics Competitions". The David Hilbert Award was merged after 1996 with the Paul Erdös Awards having the same status and with the Erdös name surviving. A quota of three such Erdös Awards in each two-year period was also introduced from 1996. See also Paul Erdös awards. The 1991 David Hilbert Award winners were: Edward Barbeau, Canada. Ed's 1989 article, Mathematics Contests: Time to take Stock? was a thought-provoking article reviewing the growth of contests and assessing their role in the learning process for students of various types. Arthur Engel, Germany. Arthur wrote an-indepth article in 1987 on the issues of creating Mathematical Olympiad Problems, from a number of perspectives. Graham Pollard, Australia. Graham's 1987 article Two Methods of Reducing Guessing in Multiple Choice Competitions proposed methods to reduce the impact of guessing, such as allowing students to nominate answers known to be incorrect and tiering the paper.
