Beginning in January, classroom-level competition took place and winners from each classroom were determined. This month, the school-wide competition is taking place to determine the winners from each grade level. At 6:30 p.m. March 19, at Wadsworth Elementary School, the champion from each school, in grades 3-6, will compete to determine the District Champion for 2014.

The competition will feature applications of mental math skills (no pencil or paper).
