The Canadian Mathematical Society is pleased to announce that its second team to compete in the European Girls Mathematical Olympiad (EGMO) has returned from Ukraine, medals in hand. The Canadian EGMO Team earned two Bronze Medals and two Honourable Mentions.

The EGMO competition got started in 2012 when it was first written in Cambridge, UK and has since grown to include more than 50 countries. Participation in the EGMO is by invitation only. Each student competes individually to solve six questions in a competition lasting two days, four and a half hours each day. The Girls Math Team Canada was selected largely based on the results of the 2018 Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) written in November, as well as a Team Selection Test that was sent to the top 15 girls from the 2018 COMC.
