1. The purpose of the

As you know, the Ministry of Education and Science promptly amended the current "Regulations on Olympiads…" (this was done with an unheard of speed of approval in the Ministry of Justice as to our business production), which provides for the cancellation of olympiads of the I-IV Olympiads for the period of quarantine (and other foreshore circumstances). In the last section, we will recall this new paragraph of the current "Regulations…"

It is clear that quarantine restrictions in our country will be lifted very soon, and therefore all our best young mathematicians, who have been fruitfully preparing for mathematical olympiads for several years, are deprived of this opportunity to participate and win. Last academic year there was an attempt to deprive only participation in the IV stage of the All-Ukrainian Olympiad, and this year most children did not even have school Olympiads. In some regions, they managed to hold both the I and the 2 stages, but this case stopped. It's adults who can measure their lives for years and say, "Next year we'll get over it…", but it's unacceptable. Every talented child only happens once in each class, and expects the opportunity to compete with peers every year.Therefore, in order not to lose motivation in the study of mathematics among talented Ukrainian schoolchildren, in order not to get a whole layer of schoolchildren disappointed by society, we decided to hold a city olympiad in Kyiv under the auspices of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. Our university has extensive experience in organizing and conducting such Olympiads for students of 4-6 grades, held in Kiev since 2013 and gained great popularity. Now, on a similar basis, we plan to hold an Olympiad for grades 7-11. This city Olympiad will not be the successor to the official Olympiads held by the Ministry of Education and Science, but will become an alternative Olympiad, the purpose of which is explained above.

2. Preparation for the city Olympiad

Soon we will open registration for participation in the city Olympiad in mathematics under the auspices of the Kyiv National University. Shevchenko (in the future in the text we will reduce it as IOM). Initially, we planned to replace both the second and third stages of olympiads in Kiev, but decided, due to the openness of these Olympiads, do not do this. Because every child who is not very successful at the second stage will want to rehabilititis at the third stage. Thus, we will hold IOM as before the Olympiad of the THIRD stage in Kyiv in 2 rounds: the 1st round is open to all those who register in a timely manner, and the 2nd round is for the winners of the 1st round. Thus, unfortunately, there will be no analogue of the second stage in the city of Kyiv. But this opens the possibility for official educational authorities in case of quarantine cancellation in Kyiv at the end of the school year to hold this stage in accordance with the current "Regulations".This time, no child will be "delegated" officially from school and for the victory of their children in IOM there will be neither the school nor teachers any preferences other than the moral satisfaction of the success of their pupils in an honest competition with peers. Thus, we expect fewer participants than usual to participate in the 3rd stage of the Olympiad in Kyiv (and even less so than the annual number of participants of district olympiads), but we will see. We will soon start this registration, which will last until 12:00 on Friday, January 15, 2021. The deadline for registration of more than a month is sufficient to refuse everyone who again at the end of registration will try to "torpedo" the organizing committee of the Olympiad requests – "for objective reasons, we did not have time to register…", "we thought that the registration is still ongoing, and it has already closed…", "Register us out of time because we were not in Ukraine…" and a bunch of similar ones. Upon completion of registration, we will see the number of children who really want to participate in olympiads without any coercion.The Olympiad itself will be held in the premises of the KNU. Shevchenko, as we are not sure that rectors or directors of other educational institutions in Kyiv will gladly open the door for IOM participants. Our university also has a sufficient number of classrooms to seat children in accordance with the restrictive requirements that will be in force in the country and Kyiv at that time, and we already have experience in carrying out events in compliance with all requirements. More precisely, our students of mathematical faculties have this experience, which, as always, are the best both as organizers and as jury members.The exact distribution by audiences will be given immediately after the registration, so that we understand the number of necessary premises, because it is difficult to predict the number of participants at the moment.A jury will also be formed, in which we are happy to invite all teachers, methodologists, teachers, postgraduates, students and graduates of universities who want to join the verification of works. We hope that the basis of our jury will be the annual jury of the City Olympiad in Kyiv. But now, without undecessarily pressure and coercion on some teachers. Anyone wishing to assist with IOM should simply inform us in any way – by phone, mail, telegram, etc. 

3. IOM Duration

We plan to hold this Olympiad on two Sundays: January 24 (1st round) and January 31 (2nd round). We very much hope that at this time all the hard lockdowns will pass and we will be able to do this without violating the adopted norms in the country. Otherwise, the term of the Olympiad will simply be shifted for a week or two, depending on the situation. So far, we are focusing on these dates. This is an appeal to potential jury members and the organizing committee so that everyone knows when exactly your help is needed. 

4. Olympiads in the regions

We understand and experience of recent years confirms that in Kiev and in particular in KNU them. Shevchenko is very positive attitude to holding various events for young mathematicians. But we hope that the leading universities in each region will also respond to the example of KNU. Shevchenko will also be able to join the holding and organization of analogue regional Olympiads in their regions. Universities in all years have been the center of cultural and educational life in the regions, so now is the time to just confirm it. We appeal to the mathematical faculties and departments to help in conducting such an Olympiad. If you can organize everything simultaneously with IOM Kyiv, then we will again develop texts of three levels for 1 and 2 rounds of Olympiads and will gladly offer everyone who wants to compete in common texts. If in the regions there is a desire to compete for your texts or simply the proposed terms do not suit you, then offer your children their own. But do not deprive children of your region of the opportunity to compete with their peers. I think that the best advertising for the university can not be sought. All children will see how much the university means in their field and the special attractiveness of the natural faculties. 

5. 9th Kyiv City Olympiad for students of 4-6 grades

Of course, we have not forgotten our "brainchild" – the city Olympiad for students of 4-6 grades, which has always been held under the auspices of the Kyiv National University. Shevchenko. We will soon announce registration for this event, which will also last until January 2021 (we will clarify the number). The main difference of this year's Olympiad will be that we will not allow unsealed children, and also very much ask to notify those who are registered, but do not want or cannot participate in the Olympiad. This is all related to quarantine restrictions, that is, we have to nurse children in a safe way through classrooms and inside the audience, and therefore every extra place will not just be found.Approximate date of the 1st round of this Olympiad: January 30-31, 2021. 

6. Interesting things about the adopted amendments to the "Regulations"

Recall the text of the relevant order of the Ministry of Education and Science.

MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND SCIENCE OF UKRAINE ORDER

11.11.2020 m Kyiv N 1398

Registered with the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine

November 27, 2020 by N 1187/35470

On amendments to the Regulations on All-Ukrainian student olympiads, tournaments, competitions in academic subjects, competitions-defense of research works, olympiads in special disciplines and competitions of professional skills
In accordance with subparaute 1 item 11, paragraphs 12 – 16 of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of July 22, 2020 N 641 "On the establishment of quarantine and the introduction of enhanced anti-epidemic measures in the territory with a significant spread of acute respiratory disease COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2", on the basis of paragraph 8 of the Regulation on the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of October 16, 2014 N 630, due to the level of epidemic danger on the territory of Ukraine and in order to prevent the spread of acute respiratory disease COVID-19 caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in Ukraine,

Command:

1. Paragraph 1.2 of Section I of the Regulations on All-Ukrainian Student Olympiads, Tournaments, Competitions in Academic Subjects, competitions for the protection of research works, olympiads in special disciplines and competitions of professional skills, approved by the Order of the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sports of Ukraine of September 22, 2011 N 1099, registered in the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine on November 17, 2011 under N 1318/20056, after the paragraph thirty-sixth supplement with a new paragraph

"All-Ukrainian student olympiads in academic subjects, tournaments, olympiads in special disciplines and competitions of professional skills are not held during emergencies of natural and man-made origin, quarantine, the introduction of anti-epidemic measures and other circumstances that objectively make it impossible to conduct them (hereinafter – extraordinary circumstances). During the extraordinary circumstances, all-Ukrainian student competitions in academic disciplines and competitions for the protection of research works can be held exclusively in part-time (remote) form."

1. "After paragraph thirty-six, supplement the new paragraph with such a table of contents."

Even jokingly, it is difficult to imagine a person who will simply sit down for the text of this "Regulations" and begin to count the 36th paragraph. Even more funny would be to write after the 3147th letter of the text, or after the 236th letter "a", etc. Moreover, for everyone who has seen this section, where there is a list of Olympiads and this list sometimes also changes, and therefore, when adding 1-2 more Olympiads, this item can completely change its location.

2. "During the extraordinary circumstances, all-Ukrainian student competitions in academic disciplines and competitions for the protection of research works can be held exclusively in part-time (distance) form."

Here is the title of the document: "Regulations on All-Ukrainian student olympiads, tournaments, competitions in academic subjects, competitions-defense of research works, Olympiads in special disciplines and competitions of professional skills." As you can see here there is no such thing as "competitions in academic disciplines", which for some reason are allowed to be held in part-time form, but Olympiads, based on direct reading of the text, are not allowed in any form.GLORY TO UKRAINE!!

GLORY TO THE HEROES!!!
