Thirty-two Coweta County middle-schoolers recently traveled to Auburn University to compete in the Auburn Mathematical Puzzle Challenge (AMP'd).

Students from the Central Educational Center's 8th Grade Academy, East Coweta Middle and Smokey Road Middle competed in a day full of challenges at the event, and walked away with one first place win.

Students began the day by competing in a marketing challenge.

Students purchased goods to solve a problem that would lead them to their room key. Once inside, teams were given three puzzles to solve. The Coweta teams solved all three puzzles and received bonus pieces as well.

Following challenges included three more puzzles and three more bonuses. The students worked throughout the day to gain pieces to a final puzzle.

During the final challenge the team from CEC won first place and received the 'Ready Set Go' award. Each team received a plaque, a puzzle and T-shirts.

'The students represented the county with excellence and their teachers could not be more proud of their accomplishments,' said East Coweta technology teacher Blaire Booth.
