Throughout February, students from elementary through high school in Clay County competed for the honor to represent their school and county at the Regional Math Field Day for Boone, Clay, Kanawha and Putnam counties on March 15, 2018, on the campus of the University of Charleston.

With a written test, mental math exercises, an estimation computation event and physical estimation questions, students showed off their math skills and earned bragging rights as the best math students that Clay County has to offer.
