12th Philippine Sudoku Super Challenge at SM
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.
