The 8th Annual Math and Logic Competition
There are ten black socks and ten white socks in a drawer. How many must you draw to
ensure you have a pair of a single color? In the 8 th Annual Math and Logic Competition,
gymnasium and lykeion students contemplated these puzzles and more as they sought to apply
their mathematical prowess to logical riddles. 77 teams from 23 schools across all of Greece
took part in this challenging two-day competition. The 21 st Gymnasio Patras and the American
Farm School won the gymnasium and lykeion categories, respectively.
Congratulations to Anatolia students Maria Charisi, Rea Batsari, and Michalis Sarris for
winning second place in the lykeion competition, and to Giorgos Gkioulekas, Marianna
Sidiropoulou, and Efthymia Sidiropulou for winning third place in the lykeion competition.
For the first time since Anatolia initiated this competition eight years ago, other schools
around Greece have also begun their own math and logic competitions. We are proud to have
started this tradition and excited that more students across Greece will be able to have this
great educational experience. Thank you to Ms. Samara for continuing this wonderful tradition!
