Congratulations goes to the UP Diliman "Savers" team for getting a third-place finish in the recently concluded Trend Micro Technology Challenge! Yes, I know that 200,000 pesos is a large sum of money but it would have been 1 million. :)

Anyway, I am glad that we got a place considering that we fielded three teams to the competition. We should have swept the awards and bagging 1.7 million pesos instead. hehe. Well, can't win 'em all, huh?

Again, congratulations and hope to get the top prize next year.

UP TEAM Bags First Place at Clash of the Brains!

With a total score of 410 points, the UP team brought home the roving cup of the annual Clash of the Brains held at the De La Salle University this afternoon. The second place went to Ateneo de Manila who got 300 points while the third went to UST with 290 points. The team of Ardee Aram (4th year, BSCS), Linda Sarmiento (4th year, BSCS), Michael Chua (3rd year, BSCS) and Prem Rara (4th year, BSEE) grabbed the cup from the defending champion and winner of two consecutive years, the Ateneo de Manila University. A university that wins the contest for three consecutive years gets to keep the cup.

Congratulations Clash team!!!
