The School Maths Olympics was first run in 1999 and has been run every year since! Before 1999, school teams could enter the University Maths Olympics directly. Creating a separate Olympics for high school students encouraged more involvement by allowing many more teams to compete and letting us tailor the questions to a more appropriate level of background knowledge. For 20 years the SMO has given many young mathematicians a couple of hours of fun challenges and an interesting university experience!
