Luke Robitaille received a $10,000 scholarship for his mathematics portfolio:

“My project is about mathematical objects called braids, which are formed from strands (like pieces of string or yarn) that intertwine . . . My main theorem is that as the number of strands get larger and larger, almost all of the simple braids with a given number of strands give a “chaotic” mixing.”
