All area sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students are invited to participate in the 12th annual Pellissippi State Middle School Mathematics Contest, Friday, May 4.
Last year’s competition attracted more than 600 of the top math students from East Tennessee middle schools and also included home-school and independent competitors. The students participated in the contest at Pellissippi State Community College for the honor of being named the top middle school math student in East Tennessee.
This year’s event will again take place at the Hardin Valley Campus. The day begins with registration, 7:50-8:30 a.m. in the Clayton Performing Arts Center, and includes competitions for each grade level, as well as a party with food, music, games and inflatables.
Participation is free and more than $6,000 in prizes will be awarded to the top finishers, thanks to funding provided by Oak Ridge Associated Universities.
Students are asked to bring pencils and a calculator, except those with QWERTY keypads.
