A BS Computer Science major in Software Engineering freshman student, Rohi Bustamante, of Metro Dumaguete College, was adjudged as the provincial champion during the 26th Philippine Statistics Quiz held on Oct. 20 at Provincial Convention Center, this city.

RJ Quimosquimos garnered the 1st runner-up prize, while Paul Czar Cataylo landed 2nd runner-up. Both are BS Computer Engineering students at the Asian College of Science & Technology.

According to Philippine Statistics Authority Chief Statistical Specialist Engr. Ariel Fortuito, the three provincial winners will represent Negros Oriental in the 26th PSQ regional competitions on Nov. 14 in Cebu.

The PSQ is designed to test college freshman on their knowledge and application of statistics.

The provincial elimination was a simultaneous activity within other provinces in Central Visayas.

The regional elimination will determine the representative to the national finals.

Provincial winners received cash prize of P2,000 for the champion, and P1,500 and P1,000 for the 1st and 2nd runner-up winners, respectively. All regional champions will also be awarded during the National Finals with a PSQ medal and a certificate of recognition. (JCT/PIA7 NegOr)
