What the best mathematicians are saying…

“I am almost speechless facing the ingenuity and inventiveness demonstrated in the problems proposed in the third decade of these Olympics. However, equally impressive is the drive and persistence of the originator and living soul of them. It is hard for me to imagine the enthusiasm and commitment needed to work singlehandedly on such and endeavor over several decades.”
– Branko Grünbaum, University of Washington

“…The Olympiad problems were very good from the beginning, but in the third decade the problems have become extraordinarily good. Every brace of 5 problems is a work of art. The harder individual problems range in quality from brilliant to work of genius…”
– Peter D. Johnson, Jr., Auburn University


In the 34 years of the Colorado Mathematical Olympiad, over 19,000 students have participated during 1984-2017. They have written over 95,000 essays, and were awarded over $395,000 in prizes.
The Olympiad is a unique joint effort of school districts, schools, industry, University of Colorado, and State government.
