Balkan Mathematical Olympiad

History

The Balkan Mathematical Olympiad (BMO) is a mathematical competition for high-school students from the region of Balkan.

The first BMO was organized in Greece in 1984. That year four countries competed: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece and Romania. Since then, the competition has been held annually. Today there are ten member coutries of BMO: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, FYR Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Turkey. However, the hosting country may invite guest teams to participate.

The competition

Each country sends up to six contestants, a team leader and a deputy leader. Like the IMO, this is an individual competition. On the competition students are given 4.5 hours to solve 4 problems. Each problem is worth 10 points, making 40 the maximum possible score.

Awards

Successful contestants are awarded first, second, and third prizes. A honorable mention is awarded to each student who does not receive a prize, but who has obtained 10 points on at least one question. The total number of prizes should not exceed 2/3 of participants, and the first, second, and third prizes are distributed approximately in the ratio 1:2:3.
