Davao scholars top finishers in math tilt

May. 19, 2008

Scholars from the Philippine Science High School southern Mindanao campus (PSHS-SMC) Wayne Isaac T. Uy and Anne Marie L. Go were among the top finishers in the 2008 Metrobank-Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) – Department of Education math challenge held last April 5, 2008 in Makati.

Out of 67,441 participants in the nationwide mathematics contest, the tandem of Uy and Go bagged third place in the team category (fourth year high school). Uy was also third place in the fourth year high school individual category.

The two seniors received cash prizes, medals and trophies from the chairperson of the house committee on basic education and culture representative Del de Guzman, from officials from the Department of Education, from Metrobank Foundation and from the MTAP.

Now on its eleventh year, the Metrobank Math Challenge has become one of the most prestigious math competitions among elementary and high school students nationwide. It is implemented all over the country by Metrobank Foundation in partnership with the MTAP and with the support of the First Metro Investment Corporation.

According to PSHS southern Mindanao director Delia Legaspino, the accomplishments of Uy and Go should not just make PSHS-SMC proud but also the rest of Mindanaoans and Davaoeos. (PSHS-SMC/PIA)
