RIDGELAND/JACKSON (Mississippi News Now) -

The Brown Bottling Group, adopt-a-school partners with Walton Elementary School, will challenge fourth-grade students in the 9th annual “Are You Smarter than Mountain Dew?” multiplication challenge.

The challenge is scheduled for Friday, February 23 at 9 a.m. in the Walton Elementary auditorium, located at 3200 Bailey Avenue.

The challenge aims to get students excited about math and help them study before statewide testing. The school-wide assembly allows the top math students from the fourth-grade classes to compete against Brown Bottling Group employees in a fast-paced multiplication battle. 

Walton’s fourth-grade team will be competing for their eighth consecutive win over the Brown Bottling Group team.

“We find this is a great way to get students fired up about math, and the students take the competition very seriously,” said Mountain Dew’s adopt-a-school coordinator Marilyn Williams. “It’s a win-win for all involved, and the atmosphere in the auditorium is electric with the younger students cheering on the 4th graders.”
