Math Olympiads went public in 1979. Last year 150,000 students from 6,000 teams worldwide participated in the Olympiads. 49 of the 50 American states and about 30 other countries were represented. This contest is an internationally recognized programme and all affiliates run the same contests around the world in USA, Canada, Columbia, Iceland, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore and India.
