The European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad is an international mathematics competition similar in style to the International Mathematical Olympiad, with two papers taken on two consecutive days.

Participation in an EGMO is by invitation only. Each invited country is to send a team consisting of up to four female contestants, a leader, and a deputy leader. 

Country’s contestants are normally citizens or residents of that country, and should be selected through that country’s national Mathematical Olympiad or an equivalent selection programme. If you are interested in the selection process of a certain country, please check the national Mathematical Olympiad site, or contact the IMO team leader, on the following list: The list of EGMO team leaders can be found here: 

Contestants need to be less than twenty years old before 1 April in the year of participation at the EGMO. Contestants are normally enrolled in full-time primary or secondary education on or after 1 December in the year prior to the EGMO, or, in the case of home-schooled students, they should not have received a high-school diploma (or equivalent), and must be working toward such credentials on 1 December.

In special circumstances the EGMO Advisory Board can approve a minor deviation from these rules for specific countries on request only. All the information on deviations will be available to other participating countries. The list of the host and participating countries, results, scoreboards can be found on the official EGMO page (
