The Committee on the American Mathematics Competitions announces a new contest, the USA Junior Mathematical Olympiad, for students in 10th grade and below. This year, 237 students qualified for the USAJMO. On April 27-28, these students tackled a challenging, six-question exam, distributed via the Internet to their schools. The top thirteen scores, including ties, are listed below in alphabetical order.
