12th Philip­pine Sudoku Su­per Chal­lenge at SM

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Billboard -

SM Su­permalls and the Math­e­mat­ics Train­ers Guild - Philip­pines will hold the 12th Philip­pine Sudoku Su­per Chal­lenge on Oc­to­ber 14 start­ing 2pm at se­lected SM malls na­tion­wide.

The 12th Philip­pine Sudoku Su­per Chal­lenge will be held si­mul­ta­ne­ously across SM malls in Ca­gayan de Oro, Das­mari­nas, Baguio, Cebu, Pam­panga, Iloilo, Lu­cena, Bali­wag, Ba­colod, Lipa, Ros­ales, Tar­lac, Davao, Naga, Olon­gapo, Ca­banat­uan and San Lazaro.

The Sky­dome at SM City North Edsa will be the venue for the 12th PSSC na­tional fi­nals on Jan­uary 27 next year and for the Fam­ily Math Quest na­tional fi­nals on De­cem­ber 9 this year.

“We’ve been in this for 10 years and we’ve seen how im­por­tant math is for chil­dren. This group (MTG) has nur­tured cham­pi­ons. But the most in­ter­est­ing thing is how the par­ents, teach­ers, and chil­dren bond to­gether. This is, I think, a very, very good pro­ject and we’re happy that they asked us to be part of this,” Mil­lie Di­zon, SM se­nior vice pres­i­dent for mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions said.

More than P 250,000 in cash prizes await the win­ners in the PSSC na­tional fi­nals.

Pre­vi­ous Filipino sudoku con­test win­ners went on to win in in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions in­clud­ing Sarah Jane Cua who emerged as cham­pion in the 2008 and 2010 BRAND’S Sudoku Chal­lenge Asia Pa­cific Open in Sin­ga­pore. John Robert Val­cos and Cua won as cham­pion and first run­ner up, re­spec­tively, in the 3rd BRAND’S Sudoku Thai­land In­ter­na­tional Open 2009 Princess Som­sawali Cup in Bangkok.
