Girls Math Team Canada
Help us send a team of Canadian girls to EGMO: the European Girls' Math Olympiad.
EGMO is a by invitation only international math competition for high school girls which started in 2012. Canada was invited to send a team in 2018, and a generous donation from the University of Waterloo made it possible for Math Team Canada to participate in EGMO. The team members came home with 3 medals, a new level of confidence in their mathematical abilities and a new glimpse of what they can achieve. They now envision themselves as future leaders.
Having a Math Team consisting of girls sets an example for all girls, and motivates them to think of math as something they can do well in.
We need help sending a team in 2019! Every bit of support helps so Math Team Canada can participate in the 2019 competitions.
Your donation will go to help cover the travel and registration costs of the team. The training of the girls is done by eager mathematicians who volunteer their time.
