The BAMO 2020 awards are now posted here! Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in BAMO!

The Bay Area Mathematical Olympiad (BAMO) consists of two exams, each taken by hundreds of students, with 5 proof-type math problems to be solved in 4 hours. One exam is for students in 8th grade and under, and the other for students in 12th grade and under. They are held on the last Wednesday of every February, at schools and several open sites around the Bay Area.

The 22nd annual BAMO took place at participating schools on Wednesday, February 26, 2020. The awards ceremony will take place on Saturday, March 14, 2020.

Please Donate!

BAMO has been free for all participants for the past twenty years, supported by grants and generous donations from individuals. Our expenses have increased and we are struggling to keep this event sustainable and inclusive. If you have not donated before, please consider doing so. Even better, ask your workplace to match your donation. Please contact bamo@msri.org to help sponsor this year's contest.
