The 4th and 5th graders that made it through the preliminary rounds of Math 24 had the chance to compete in the school finals. Out of the 24 students who competed, Ellis Sheridan, Emory Lyda, Jack Nelson and Jonathon Jacob made it to the 'Final Four'. These four finalists went neck and neck to see who would be the school winner. With just one point over Emory Lyda, Jonathon Jacobs was the winner.
