Johns Creek, GA, November, 5th 2014 – Local elementary school students recently put their math skills to the test to earn prizes and money for their schools in the Mathnasium of Johns Creek and South Forsyth 2014 TriMathlon contest, earning money for local schools and winning prizes.

In the U.S. and Canada, Mathnasium TriMathlon participants raised about $40,000 for local schools. Participants earned money for local schools just by participating in TriMathlon.

"[The TriMathlon] was a big success with students and parents alike this year, demonstrating clearly that math can be fun. The fact that the children raised money for local schools just for participating added a level of community service to the contest," said Chris Lee, Mathnasium of Johns Creek and South Forsyth franchisee. "Everyone who participated should be proud of what they've accomplished for their schools, their community and themselves."

The TriMathlon winners were:

Grade 5: Wilson Fisher, Medlock Bridge Elementary, first place; Neel Sarkar, Creekview Elementary, first place; Aubrey Lee, Bridgeway Christian Academy, second place; Alexander Lee, Notre Dame Academy, third place.
