Salinas, Calif. - On a day designed for sharp pencils and even sharper minds, Will Calciano of York School was awarded the $1,000 Richard Morgantini Scholarship for being the top-scoring student taking the advanced calculus exam. The 48th annual Mathletics Competition was held Saturday May 14 at Salinas High School.
Mathletics is a math contest held annually to encourage excellence in math, and recognize the achievements of individual students and the schools they represent.
Nearly 300 upper elementary, middle and high school students from 36 Monterey County public and private schools participated in the event, which tests students in one of ten levels: fifth grade math, sixth grade math, seventh grade math, eighth grade math, integrated math 1, integrated math 2, algebra 2, math analysis, calculus AB and calculus BC.
First, second, and third place winners in each level received an Olympic-sized medal and gift card. In addition, top-scoring schools for each of the ten tests were awarded certificates.
Mathletics is funded in part by long-time supporter, the Monterey County Richard Morgantini Foundation, as well as Chevron North America Exploration and Production, Tanimura & Antle, and Boggiatto Produce.
