Grissom High hosts math contest at the U.S. Rocket Center

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A dueling of the minds Saturday as school kids come to Huntsville for a local high school math contest.

For the first time, the Grissom High School Math Contest was held at the Davidson Center at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

More than 800 students from 40 schools competed in the annual event that has spanned the last three decades.

"We try to write the tests so that not every person is going to get every question right and not every person is going to get every question wrong so you don't come out feeling really bad about how you did," said Lauren Levenhagen, Student Coordinator.

The event ended with an awards ceremony.
