¡Welcome to the Panamerican Girls' Mathematical Olympiad!


The organizers of the first Pan-American Girls' Mathematical Olympiad (PAGMO) are very excited to see this project come to light and have the first edition of PAGMO in 2021. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this first edition will be held online.

PAGMO is an international olympiad for girls that has the potential to have a positive impact in the math olympiad community, including:

  • Creating opportunities for women to test their mathematical potential, and at the same time representing their country. The second point helps to highlight women's achievements in regional mathematical competitions.
  • It provides a space where participants can get along more easily and strengthen their confidence in their mathematical work.
  • It boosts motivation for a better performance in training and national competitions.
  • They will meet their peers from other countries.

The opportunity to share with women from different cultures and other ways to appreciate mathematics and to solve problems can be highly beneficial in a broad sence. Enabling enjoyable conversations about mathematics and science in general, can motivate girls to look for new literature, to approach problems from other mathematical contests, and to entertain the possibility of pursuing academic programs in science in their home country or abroad. In addition, it enables interactions where girls can share ideas about their own culture, way of life, challenges and quirks. Despite living in different countries, they might become colleagues or friends in the future.

We invite you to read the PAGMO 2021 Regulations and this year's Programme.
