1. Invitation from the Chairman of the Jury to conduct 2021 VM-2021 in the regions
From many regions, they are asked to send an invitation letter regarding the participation of the regional team. I'm here to send this invitation from the head of the jury, without specifying the addressee. If you are satisfied with this – great if you need to contact a particular person (rector, dean, head of a certain institution, etc.), then write about it and we will do everything promptly.
I immediately emphasize that Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv gladly supports this event, but considers it not a very correct act to invite to this All-Ukrainian event from our university, because this is a common cause of many universities and other educational institutions throughout the country.
2.Principles of 2021
2021 will be conducted in a completely similar way to the OM last year. Unless we try to take into account certain shortcomings that are simply impossible to avoid completely.
2021 OM combines two competitions – LXI All-Ukrainian Olympiad and IV All-Ukrainian Olympiad for students of 5-7 grades. That is, in regional teams students of 5-11 grades will compete. As last year, not all teams managed to collect in full volume, and in two regions (Kirovohrad and Sumy) there is not a single participant yet. But it is simply impossible to manage everyone from Kyiv. Therefore, we expect that all registered children will be able to participate in the event. The list of declared participants can be found at the link:
It can still be updated and clarified by the organizing committees of regional Olympiads.
Students of 8 – 11 classes will be offered in each of the rounds of 4 tasks, which will need to be solved within 4 hours.
Students of grades 6 and 7 will solve 5 tasks within 3 hours.
Students of 5 classes will solve 5 tasks within 2.5 hours.
The tours will take place on April 1 and 2, 2021. For students of 8 – 11 grades, the writing time is from 10 to 14 hours, for students of 5 – 7 grades in each region you can choose the start and end times for themselves. But the start should be no earlier than 10:00, the end – no later than 14:00. It depends on what is more convenient for you – to start the Olympiad at the same time, or to complete it simultaneously. If you do not receive clarification on this, then the time of writing for students in grades 6 and 7 will be from 10:00 to 13:00, and for students of 5 classes – from 10:00 to 12:30.
Immediately upon completion of each of the tours, all participants must be scanned and sent to the 2021 OM Organizing Committee. The contact to which the scans of work should be sent will be agreed with the responsible persons of each region.
The jury in each parallel will be divided into teams that will check 1 task in each round. On the evening of April 2, preliminary results of the Olympiad and criteria for assessing tasks, as well as the form for appeal will be presented. The schedule of appeal by each jury brigade on the relevant tasks will also be given. The appeal will last on April 3 and 4, 2021 and should be completed no later than 16:00 on Sunday, April 4. At 17:00, a final jury meeting is scheduled, at which the final results of 2021 OM will be summarized.
3. Quarantine restrictions and integrity during THE 2021
I hope that for the team of each region, local organizing committees will be able to find safe venues, despite the "color" of the area (from yellow to red), since the number of children in each team is very small, it will be easy to do in any educational institution – university, school, etc. Details – the number of participants in each audience, staying in a mask all the time, etc. will be coordinated on the ground by the organizing committees and parents of the participants.
As for integrity, they are standard – participants have no right to use third-party sources, to communicate with third parties, except for members of the organizing committee. It is desirable to organize video surveillance in the audiences of the participants' stay so that there are no strangers in the corridors on the way to the toilets, etc. In general, all responsibility lies with the regional organizing committees, which last year perfectly coped with all these issues. We hope for this this year as well.
As last year, the parents of each child must provide the local organizing committee with written permission to participate in WOM-2021 according to the following sample:
on-line Olympiad 2021
and chairman of the WOM-2021 organizing committee
mother (father) of the 4OM participant–2021
from (Lviv) region
(Taras Shevchenko) (Grade 8)
(Shevchenko Oksana Bohdanivna)
I give permission for my child to participate in the 2021 UM Online Olympiad. I believe that for the 2021 OM-2021 all the necessary conditions for its safe conduct for my child have been fulfilled.
But I understand that 100% protection against COVID-19 does not exist yet.
About everything further – as always, expect information on this site. Soon there will be a list of the jury with class division, certain clarifications on the regulations of 2021, in particular, we plan to limit the time for questions of participants on conditions only in the first hour, as is customary at international mathematical events around the world. Other not very significant clarifications are possible, which you will advise us about, or we ourselves will consider their expediency.
Glory to Ukraine!!!
Glory to the heroes!!!
