JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The 40th annual Regional Math Contest was held on the Arkansas State University campus on Saturday.

More than 150 high school students participated in the contest.

Students were tasked with taking a math test in just one hour.

One student said the test was challenging, but she enjoyed being a part of the competition.

"It takes the whole year that you've learned and we've only gone part way through the year," said high school senior Alyson Nichols.  "So, there's questions on there of material that you haven't covered yet in class."

Students from Trumann, Blytheville and other Northeast Arkansas schools were among the participants.

The top scoring participants were awarded trophies.
