Students Receive Mathletes Rewards
(02-16-2014)

High school students throughout St. Tammany Parish were awarded special prizes this month from the Chevron and New Orleans Pelicans “Mathletes” Program. Now in its third year, the educational initiative gives prizes to students as an incentive to do well in their math classes and improve their grades over the course of the year for bigger prizes.

While the scheduled prize distributions were disrupted in late January by the freezing weather, schools went ahead with giving their eligible students special caps emblazoned with the Pelicans Mathletes logo and Chevron logo. Dozens of students could be seen across campuses wearing their Pelicans Mathletes caps. Other prizes will be awarded as the program progresses.

Those prizes can include a ticket to a New Orleans Pelicans basketball game, transportation to and from the game, and a Mathletes T-shirt.

The Mathletes project is a result of the Chevron/Pelicans partnership which endorses STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education in the St. Tammany Parish Public Schools. Ninth through 12th grade students in St. Tammany Parish participate in the program. Qualifying students have to increase their average GPA one letter grade or more or have an A average in math.
