There are less than 12 hours to go before the start of the 2010 Lloydminster Math Challenge.

Students from schools in Lloydminster, Alberta and Saskatchewan have been flexing their fingers and warming up their math skills (and keyboards!) during the last week of practice.

Who will be the winning school and student this year?

Here are a few fascinating facts about Lloydminster while we wait to find out!

  • Lloydminster has a border running right through it!  This means half the city is in Saskatchewan, the other half in Alberta.  It is Canada’s only border city!
  • The median age of residents on the Saskatchewan side is 26.6, nearly seven years less than the the median age of 33.2 on the Alberta side!

Keep an eye on the blog for the latest news and developments.   Best of Luck everyone!
