Results of olympiad
We present the final results of the Olympiad.
All tasks were solved, although some of them are only individual schoolchildren. The level of participants was very high, although, as the experience of the second such Olympiad shows, children from regions where rigorous selection for participation was usually better prepared for victories. Therefore, at the closing, I once again spread the idea that it is desirable in each region to hold competitions for students of 4-6 grades.
Closing of the Olympiad
Again, it should be noted that philanthropists are very difficult to find for mathematical events. After long IT negotiations, Beetroot presented 80 notebooks and pens with their logos. All other IT companies hope that they will be known when the days of career at universities come. But I will share my experience – it is too late, it is necessary that potential IT specialists learn about your existence already at school age. There were also gifts from Ukrsibbank, our permanent sponsor of most events. But the main sponsor was our Ukrainian diaspora in California. It was Ukrainians in the UNITED States who raised funds for which they purchased smartphones and backpacks, which managed to award our winners. I think that everyone was satisfied with these prizes, but where are similar benefactors inside the country?
I would love to hear your suggestions and wishes for this event next year. What is worth changing, which was very beautiful, share your thoughts, please, if you are not indifferent to such events.
GLORY TO UKRAINE!
