In April 2022, 16 highly motivated Grade 11 and 12 Lakefield College School students put their knowledge and skills to the test as they wrote the Euclid Mathematics Contest. Students wrote this contest, both for their love of solving a good problem and to gain an edge in their admission decision with the University of Waterloo. Simply writing the contest counts in a student’s favour but achieving highly can lead to a scholarship offer.

At the end of May, the results from the competition were released. Congratulations to all students who participated.
