It was a battle of the minds Thursday evening at Lexington High School.

A total of 35 fourth graders from the Lexington School District competed against five adult Lexington celebrities in "Are You Smarter than a Lexington 4th Grader?" in the high school auditorium.

The Lexington Bicentennial Committee organized the event which featured local celebrities Mayor Gene Parkison, school board president Bob Whitney, councilman Wynn Kearns, football coach Dan Studer and little league head Ted Wendling. 
 
More than 250 people came out to enjoy the free program.  All the fourth graders that participated received a bicentennial t-shirt and wrist band.
