Olympiad competition begins
Junior high schools from Northshore School District will compete for top honors in individual and team mathematics at Kenmore Junior High Dec. 5.
This marks the fourth year of inter-district competition for Northshore's junior high math students. The schools competing include Canyon Park, Kenmore, Leota, Northshore, and Skyview. The purpose of the Olympiad is to encourage and recognize student achievement in mathematics.
Each junior high will be represented by teams of 13 students. There will be three individual events, including general mathematics and probability competitions. Teams will compete in the fields of algebra, geometry, and problem-solving.
The first-place school will be awarded the traveling trophy to display in their school until the 1997 Olympiad. The top three teams will receive a plaque for permanent display in their schools. Each of the 13 students on the top three teams will receive a medal. All 65 participating students will receive a Certificate of Participation.
