LIMESTONE, Maine (WABI) - Pi Day is a big day for the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone.

Students tried to recite as many digits as they could - but one stood above the rest.

Ari Anghel of Windham was the big winner, rattling off 500 digits of Pi!

It gets even better - community members were encouraged to pledge donations for each digit, benefiting the MSSM Foundation!

This fundraiser raised $27,000 for the foundation.

Ari received a free dinner for themselves and a friend at a restaurant of their choice.
