John Pernic, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Pernic, Route 1, Willard (Clark Co., Wis.), was the local winner of a mathematics contest sponsored by the Wisconsin Section of the Mathematics Association of America. Sixty-nine Greenwood High School students in the geometry and advanced algebra classes participated in the contest. The students took a test which tested their skill in working problems involving algebra, geometry and mathematical reasoning.
As top scorer, John is now eligible to compete in another contest later which will be conducted at Stevens Point. Three students were tied for second place with identical scores. They were Victor Staut, Clifton Fonstad Jr. and Lloyd Able.
Greenwood High School students have participated in the annual contest for a number of years. Last year's local winner was Lois Fredrickson, who is now enrolled at Wisconsin State College, Eau Claire.
