Once again just as in several instances, the Filipino mathletes have proven that this statement "you can do anything you wish to do, have anything you wish to have, and be anything you wish to be" as never far from anyone's grasp. The Filipino kids, this time, have  garnered 6 gold, 12, silver and 21 bronze medals, bagging along 56 certificates of distinction, 81 certificates of honors and 65 certificates of merits.

In the 24th Annual Contest of the American Mathematics Competitions (AMC) 8 given last November 19, 2008, a total of six math-gifted Pinoy kids have proven that achievement seems to be connected with action when the results of the competition finally revealed that they had not only top the AMC 8 but even perfected it. The following top scorers and gold medalists who certainly did better than their best are:

  1.  Alvin Wilson Alba- Philippine Science High School, Main Campus
  2. Kate Andrea Bonamy - Grace Christian College
  3. Michael Brodeth- Colegio San Agustin, Makati
  4. Samuel Christian Ong- UNO High School
  5. Sabrina Adabelle Tiu- St. Stephen's High School
  6. Hubert Yao- Iloilo Central Commercial High School

Reinforcing and strengthening the Philippine team to the forefront of achievement are this year's silver medalists who through sheer constancy of purpose managed to stand a step behind from the perfect scorers. They are:

  1. Charmagne Faith Capuno-  Philippine Science HS- Eastern Visayas  Campus

  9. Jessica Mae Orense-
  10. Christopher Rabi- Cebu Eastern College
  11. Pamela Sabado- Philippine Science High School- Main
  12. Amiel Sy- Philippine Science High School- Main

Twenty two Pinoy young math wizards who equally displayed admirable spirit of a winner bagged bronze medals for sharing the common quest for excellence. The bronze medalists are:

These MTG kids have only shown that "the roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that they can become", Dr. Chua, MTG President said. Indeed, their victories in the AMC 8 are great things not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. Congratulations to you all!!!
