EGMO – European Girls Maths Olympiad

Canada is a participating country in the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO).

The European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad is an international competition in mathematics. The EGMO addresses female high school students whose commitment to mathematics goes beyond the usual school curriculum. Since 2012, the EGMO is held each year in a different country.

The EGMO is the only international Science Olympiad, which addresses exclusively women as contestants. As such it is an additional opportunity for the participating countries to gain female students for participation in national Mathematical Olympiads, and thus to counteract the low proportion of women. The long term goal of the EGMO is to raise the proportion of female students in the participating teams of the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

The official website for the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad is:

2018 was the first year in which Canada has participated in EGMO.
