Local Elementary Students Shine At Sunshine Math Competition

May 16, 2017

Over 640 students participated in this year’s Sunshine Math Competition recently at  Washington High school. Those 640 students were from 28 schools and were on 54 third grade teams, 53 4th grade teams and 52 fifth grade teams.

“This was the largest Sunshine Math competition yet in Escambia County,” said Tammy Barton, ECSD Math Specialist. “We had so many compete that we had to hold the third grade awards in the auditorium and the students and their families filled the house. Then, the awards for the fourth and fifth grade teams filled the gym.”

Individual winners took home a trophy and members of the team that placed took home medals. All of the participants received certificates to mark the day.
