H.C. Fenner Elementary School recently hosted the 24 Game by Suntex International Inc.
Participants add, subtract, multiply and/or divide the four numbers they are given to create three equations. The end result must equal 24.
Students are given a limited amount of time to complete the problem.
Pictured are, back row, from left, Cindy Nutt, Sue Arrance and Valerie McDonald. Front row, from left, are Johnathan Terry, Robbie Penhollow and Jordyn Sampson. Absent is teacher Rich Bianco.
All of the students at H.C. Fenner in Falconer have been practicing for weeks to prepare for the competition.
Third-, fourth- and fifth-graders competed within their own grade level to determine the top 20 students in each grade who would advance to the 24 Challenge Finals.
Then, 60 students competed to be the winner of the 24 Challenge. First place went to fourth-grader Johnathan Terry, second place went to fifth-grader Robbie Penhollow, and third place went to fifth-grader Jordyn Sampson.
The annual event is organized by the Fenner A.I.S. staff as well as building principal Larry Spangenburg.
The Falconer Elementary PTO provided the trophies.
