The Balkan Olympiad in Informatics (BOI) and the Junior Balkan Olympiad in Informatics (JBOI) were held parallelly in Timisoara, Romania from 7 to 13 July. The main organizer of the Olympiads is the Ministry of Education of Romania. The Macedonian participants achieved a huge success at the two Olympiads, winning 1 silver and 4 bronze medals.

The silver medal at BOI 2018 was won by Martin Dinev from the village Pirava, whereas the Vladimir Maksimovski from Stip and Andrej Velichkovski from Kumanovo were the proud receivers of the bronze medals. Blagojche Pavlevski from Prilep and Teo Kitanovski from Skopje secured the two JBOI bronze medals, together with the other members of the team, Kristina Taseva and Marko Tanevski.

The Macedonian BOI and JBOI teams were carefully selected through an annual cycle of competitions organized by the Computer Society of Macedonia (CSM). The president of the Society and BOI, Mile Jovanov, stated that it is a huge success for Macedonia to participate in this kind of competitions, and on top of that for the Macedonian participants to win 5 medals. This is especially so because Macedonia had the chance to compete in the circle of much bigger countries.

The fact that the contestants that won the medals come from different towns in Macedonia proves that talented students can be found all over the country and it is up to us to identify and develop their talent, claims Jovanov. The teams had the support of volunteers from the Computer Society of Macedonia (CSM), as well as the Agency of Youth and Sport and the Faculty of Computer Science & Engineering in Skopje.

The next steps for our young computer scientists are the European Junior Olympiad in Informatics in Russia and the International Olympiad in Informatics in Japan.
