Team USA Heads to European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad

The first European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad will take place at Murray Edwards College April 12-13, 2012.

Inspired by the China Girls' Math Olympiad (CGMO), The European Girls’ Math Olympiad will be similar in style to the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), with two tests taken on consecutive days. Participating countries send teams consisting of their strongest four, high-school-age, female mathematicians.

Sarah Hermann, Julia Huang, Danielle Wang, and Victoria Xia will be representing the United States of America. Team USA results will be posted on the American Mathematics Competitions website. The members of Team USA are all veterans of international competition.
