Young mathematicians from across the state participated in the 37th Annual Oregon Invitational Math Tournament (OIMT) at OSU on Saturday, May 13th. The OIMT has been held annually by the math departments of Oregon State University, University of Oregon, and Portland State University (and in previous years, Willamette University) for the past 37 years. Students are invited to the Tournament based upon their performances at Regionals held at community colleges across the state. Students may also be invited due to exceptional scores on the AMC-10 and AMC-12 exams.

Coordinators Raven Dean and Katy Williams, along with the help of many math faculty and graduate student volunteers, made the event a resounding success. The statewide competition for top regional scoring high school math students included a 60-90 minute written exam and a team problem solving event. Winners in each category are listed below.
