it's a very pretty math contest trophy

And we gave out 46 of them today at the SACMATH Middle School Contest.

As before, the contest was a lot of work and a lot of fun. We had a good set of volunteers, who got all the grading done zippy quick and thus helped keep the contest on time. The kids seemed to have fun, the parents and teachers were very appreciative, and there was much cheering when awards were announced. All in all, it went as well as I could have ever hoped.

One contest left: The High School Contest on December 5. I need to plan a little farther ahead for this one because of the Thanksgiving holiday, but now that I've done two I'm starting to feel like I just might know what I'm doing (a little bit). I'm already having ideas for how to change the contests in the future to make them more exciting and bring in more "fun" events.

But for now, it's a glass of wine, a good night's sleep, and a contest that might just be called a success!
