Students also contributed money for the Washington County Food Pantry as part of a community service project. A total of $176 was raised this year.

Each year as a part of the celebration, the Blair High School math department holds a contest to see who can memorize the most digits of Pi. This year's winner was Derek Dibben. He was able to memorize 461 digits.
