The annual 24 Game Math Challenge was held Tuesday afternoon at Hagerstown Community College.
Contestants are to use four numbers on a card to come up with a score of 24. Students can use addition, subtraction, division and multiplication to arrive at their answers.
Varying rules and combinations of numbers make it progressively difficult for fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade students.
About 225 students participated.
The winners are:
- Fifth-grader Michelle Lok from Eastern Elementary School.
- Sixth-grader Andrew Henry from Northern Middle School.
- Seventh-grader Riley Ledden from Smithsburg Middle School.
The event was co-sponsored by Farmers & Merchants Bank and Trust, the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, and the Washington County Board of Education.
