EUREKA, Mo. ( – A select group of middle schoolers in the Rockwood District is gearing up for a trip to Chicago.

More than 44,000 kids applied but fewer than 600 were chosen to be a part of the MathCON, a national math contest with some of the smartest kids in the country.

The students who will go on the trip from Rockwood Valley Middle School love math and have fun while practicing for the competition.

MathCON begins on April 23.
