Open Set 2021 – MoMath’s Song Contest

Make math your muse!  MoMath is now accepting submissions for its annual mathematical song competition, Open Set.  Write your own words to a favorite tune or compose your own melody; the only rules are that the lyrics must be original and must be about math or a mathematical concept.  The winners will be announced — and the winning songs presented — at an online event on March 24.

Songs should be suitable for sharing with a general audience.  All submissions must be in English, and songwriters may submit up to three songs.

Submission Instructions

  1. Begin your submission by completing the form at opensetapplication2021.momath.org.  Co-writers and additional performers should each complete an entry form (the lyrics and video need only be submitted once). 
  2. Send an email to openset@momath.org with the subject line “[YOUR NAME] – Open Set entry,” containing:
    1. Your original song lyrics (the melody may be original or based on an existing song)
    2. A video of yourself performing the song (as an attachment or YouTube link)

Enter today!  Submissions will be accepted through February 22, 2021.
