KUCHING: It was a case of second time lucky for SM Lodge and St Joseph’s Private School.
The trio of Dillon Fong, Jerry Tan and Brandon Teo from SM Lodge were runners-up in last year’s edition of the RHB-The Star Mighty Minds Sarawak state challenge.
This time, they improved their position by emerging as champions in the upper secondary category during the competition here yesterday.
In second place was MRSM Kuching while another team from SM Lodge was third.
The lower secondary category was won by St Joseph’s Private School, which was making its second appearance in the competition.
Lau Sau Jee, Jeremiah Henry and Zachary Aw finished on top. SM Lodge took the second place followed by SMK Green Road.
The winners bagged RM5,000 each as well as a projector for their school.
They will represent Sarawak in the national finals later this year.
State challenges have been held in Penang, Sabah, Kelantan, Johor and Negri Sembilan with eight more to go before the finals.
Now in its sixth year, the competition is jointly organised by Star Publications (M) Bhd and RHB Banking Group.
