Hundreds of students from throughout northern Santa Barbara County put their math skills to the test in Santa Maria.
Around 300 4th, 5th, and 6th grade "mathletes" from 26 schools participated in this year's North County Math Superbowl. The 6th annual event was held at the Santa Maria Fairpark. The kids competed for individual and team awards in quiz events. Organizers say the hands-on building activity was one of the highlights.
"This gives them a chance to stand tall and be a part of something that otherwise they might not get a chance to be publicly seen and applauded for the skills they have, so I think it's very important," said Kenneth Parker, Associate Superintendent of the Orcutt Union School District.
The event was put on by the school district and Rabobank.
