Despite intense stormy weather, students from over 30 schools turned out to test their skills in the Bosco Tech Math Competition held on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
We are proud to announce that Clairbourn 6th-graders won 1st Place (for the second year in a row) in the Bosco Tech Math Competition (small school division). Our 7th/8th-graders also won 1st Place, which is gratifying because last year they matched the scores of the 1st Place winners, but had a slightly longer test-submission time.
Also worthy of great celebration are Clairbourn’s results in the Individual Math Awards category. Amongst all 132 competitors from 30 schools in the 5/6 Grade Level Division, Clairbourn’s Brian X. won 1st Place with a perfect score of 30 out of 30 questions, and William L. came in 3rd Place with a score of 25 out of 30. Then in the 7/8 Grade level division, with 153 students from 30 schools competing, Jason L. took 2nd Place with a score of 40 out of 50 questions.
This math competition is based on a test for students from grades 5 and 6 (Level I) and grades 7 and 8 (Level II). Each student took a test individually that consisted of 30 questions for Level I and 50 questions for Level II. Students had 1 hour to do the exam and were not allowed to use calculators.
It is also worthy of note that Clairbourn School allows any willing student to volunteer to compete on the two teams, and they do not send only the top math students to participate. Participants on the 6th Grade team were Parisa B., Vanessa H., Jake T., Cecilia P., William L., Anthony C., Brian X., Kelly Z., Dylan W., Jake J., Yu-Hong C., A.Z., Mikey F., Natalie A., and Adrienne X. On the 7th and 8th grade team were Jaleen T., William H., Andrew P., Matthew C., Austin H., Leah D., Kalie S., Branden O., Emily B., Barbie Z., Jason L., Wendy W., Jenny C., Aaron C., and Kevin Z.
Way to go Cougars!!!
