SALT LAKE CITY -- Fingers were flying at Hawthorne Elementary School as more than 500 students attempted to break a cup speed-stacking record.

Students timed themselves to see who could stack cups the fastest.

Hawthorne rotated 500 students for 30-minute speed-stacking sessions. The school says it counts as physical education because kids use all parts of their body to stack.

Hawthorne takes part in the Guinness World Record challenge every year. The goal this year was to have 300,000 stackers do the same around the world.
