    On Friday, April 21, the Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School math contest was held for grades 3-8.  All students would fight their way to the top of their grade, solving problems in the following categories:  number sense, geometry, and problem solving.

    The beginning questions were number sense, which is your basic numerical problems. Next was geometry, where they solved problems involving shapes, such as finding volume or surface area of shapes. The last contest was a group problem solving test, where students answered word problems as a team.

    In the end, there were awards for each category. First through third place finishers earned medals, gold for 1st, silver for 2nd, and bronze for 3rd. Fourth through sixth place winners received a certificate for a meal at Subway. Schmitz's Deli donated a free sandwich/wrap and a small fountain drink for the winning problem solving groups. Also thanks to Seneca Wholesale for providing Dr. Pepper for each participant of the contest. We appreciate the businesses that donated prizes for our contest.
