52 students at Spanish Fork Junior High School participated in the 27th annual American Mathematics Competitions 8, held on Thursday November 17, 2011.  They competed for local and national student and school awards. The contest, which covers middle school mathematics, is given at participating schools. Its purpose is to spur interest in mathematics and develop talent through the excitement of friendly competition at problem solving in a timed format.  In 2011,  over 150,000 students from over 2400 schools participated in the AMC 8 contest including approximately 1000 students from 50 schools in Utah.

Two students from SFJH received Honor Roll Certificates by scoring in the top 5% of all scores. Overall SFJH scored high enough to be on the Honor Roll for schools. The AMC exam has taken place each year since 1985. 

Congratulations to Spanish Fork Junior High and their excellent math students.
