Hundreds of students, parents, friends and teachers converged on the Shoreline Community College campus Saturday, March 8, for the 2014 Shoreline Math Olympiad.
The annual math competition is for fourth- through eighth-graders attending public and private schools in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. During the school year, students form teams and work with teachers and volunteer math coaches to prepare for the competition that has been held at Shoreline Community College for the past several years.
On the day of the competition, students gather at the college and then disperse to classrooms across the campus to solve math problems. Scores are tallied for both individual and team awards, which are given in a raucous group presentation in the college gymnasium. This year, more than 800 students from 18 schools registered for the competition.
Sponsors for the 2014 event included the Shoreline School District, Shoreline Public Schools Foundation, Shoreline Community College, Chuck Olsen Kia Chevrolet, Smart Service Subaru and James Alan Salon.
