The Regional Northern Virginia MATHCOUNTS Competition was held at George Mason University on February 6.  Early Saturday
morning, Mason’s Johnson Center buzzed with the excitement of over 400 students from 48 schools.  The Department of Mathematics and the College of Science Accelerator program helped to sponsor the event.  More than
20 faculty, graduate students and undergraduate lerning assistants helped to  judge the written part of the contest. The winners of this regional competition will now go on to compete at the state level.
