The Swiss Mathematical Olympiad (SMO) is a competition for pupils under the age of 20 who are interested in mathematics for more than the usual school material.

During several meetings and a camp, the participants get an insight into interesting topics and get the opportunity to use their skills in demanding tasks. In many countries mathematical Olympiads have a long tradition. In Switzerland there is such an Olympiad since 2004 - with increasing number of participants.

The SMO also serves as a selection procedure for the IMO team, which Switzerland is allowed to represent at the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) the following summer. The top six SMO students 2018/19 will qualify for the IMO in England. From the 11th to the 22nd of July 2019 there will be the 60th edition of this competition.
