From the photo caption:

WIZARDS OF X: Members of the math team of Stuyvesant HS gather around the trophy they won for first place in the contest of the Interscholastic Mathematics League. They bested 16 other teams in the metropolitan area.

Editors note:

Leonard Solomon is holding the plaque, but it is hard to see in the photograph.
