THE BENELUX MATHEMATICAL OLYMPIAD
The first Benelux Mathematical Olympiad (or BxMO) took place in Bergen op Zoom in May 2009. The competition consisted of a single four-and-half-hour-paper of four problems, three of which were easy IMO shortlist problems. As at the International Mathematical Olympiad, half of the contestants are awarded a bronze, silver, or gold medals in the ratio 3:2:1. The second Benelux Mathematical Olympiad took place from 23rd to 25th April 2010 in Amsterdam. Teams from Slovenia, Switzerland, and Spain also took part in that competition. The third Benelux Mathematical Olympiad took place from 6th to 8th May 2011 in Luxembourg; the fourth edition took place in Belgium, from 20th to 22nd April 2012, and the fifth edition took place in the Netherlands, from 26th to 28th April 2013.
