Area students to compete for right answer: 24

Counting on excitement, the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) is hosting a 24 Challenge® Tournament on Friday, May 13 for elementary and middle school students across the county.

The 24 Challenge® is a tournament-style competition organized around the 24® math game, which always features the answer of 24, encouraging students to understand the process of reaching that result. Millions of students across the globe have participated in these challenges since 1988, a CCIU press release said.

 According to the game maker’s website, these events are intended to “activate entire communities and involve parents and families in the goal to raise mathematics achievement among students.”

From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., students from Charles F. Patton Middle School, and Chadds Ford, Hillendale, and Pocopson elementary schools are among the competitors from 26 Chester County schools. Students from the Kennett Consolidated and West Chester Area school districts are also participating.

This is the first year that the Chester County regional tournament will feed into the statewide competition. And there will be two separate grade band competitions: one for grades 4 and 5 and one for grade 6. Between the two competitions, 90 students are registered to participate, the release said.

The top three students in each grade band will compete at the Pennsylvania State 24 Challenge® Tournament on Wednesday, June 15, in Harrisburg.
