Twenty-four fourth and fifth grade students from Reamstown, Denver and Adamstown Elementary schools participated in the Cocalico School District 24 Game competition on April 4. The goal of the 24 Game is to add, subtract, multiply and divide four numbers in order to equal 24 as quickly as possible.

Each elementary school had its own 24 Club and competition where students improved their basic fact and problem solving skills while competing against each other. The top eight students from each school then advanced to the district competition. The top eight students from the district competition will now go on to the Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13 competition to be held on May 9.

The winner of the district competition was Jacob Digman. The other seven students who will join him at the IU competition are: Travis Martin, Zach Sherk, Ben Wallace, Lexi Gonzalez, Jordan Shirk, Clay Weaver and Danny Harrington.
