At the local, state and national level, students win hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes every year.

 
On Saturday, February 11, 2017, 11 Cumberland County Middle Schools participated in the South Central Chapter Competition at Snyder Memorial Church, where 16 total schools participated.  Three of the top 5 teams were from Cumberland County Schools; 1st place was Seventy-First Classical Middle School, 2nd place was New Century International Middle School, and 5th place was John Griffin Middle School. The top 4 individual students, respectively, were Sean Kim (Seventy-First Classical Middle School), Armarion Tearry (Spring Lake Middle School), Conner Voorhees (New Century International Middle School) and Abel Abraham (Seventy-First Classical Middle School).  The top two teams, Seventy-First Classical and New Century International will advance to the state competition. The #2 Student, Armarion Tearry (Spring Lake Middle School) will also advance to State as an individual since he was in the top four students but not on the advancing teams.  
 
Good luck to the top teams and top individuals who will compete in the state level competition in March.  Congratulations to all of the students who participated in this competition! Way to go Cumberland County Middle School ‘Mathletes’!
