# United States of America Mathematical Olympiad

The United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) is an invitation-only mathematical competition sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and hosted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It is a 2-day event in which the contestants try to give proofs to six mathematical problems. The judges award 0 to 7 points to each solution, thus a perfect score is 42 points. The winners go on to represent the United States in the International Mathematical Olympiad. Currently, the Internet is used to present the problems the first day of the competition; on the second day the contestants fax back their answers. The official website of the competition is http://www.unl.edu/amc/e-exams/e8-usamo/usamo.shtml.
