DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -Middle school students got a chance to show off their math and science skills at the Duncan Area Youth Engineering Contest Friday.

Close to 80 students put their race cars to the test in categories ranging from the people's choice, fastest car and best car design. Marlow 8th grader Alli Riddle participated in last year’s contest, but says her car was disqualified. This year, she was determined to get it right.

"I'm a big perfectionist, so I just have to have it just perfect or it's going to kill me. I hope it does really well," Riddle said.

As it turns out, she won first in the people's choice award. The overall goal for the contest was to get students more engaged in math and science. This is the eight year the Duncan Area Economic Development, along with their sponsors, has hosted the event.
