During a meeting held at the Copernicus Science Centre, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, the Mayor of the Capital City, congratulated talented and hard-working students from general and technical secondary schools, and thanked their teachers.
This year, 143 students were awarded 161 titles of a laureate of Olympiads and competitions, which means that there were 12 winners in more than one competition (the record holder won 5 competitions), very often in related fields, for example in the Mathematical Olympiad and the Informatics Olympiad, or in the Economic Knowledge Olympiad and the Entrepreneurship and Management Olympiad. As many as 18 students will represent Poland in international competitions (olympiads: mathematical, informatics, mathematical linguistics, physics, chemistry, astronomy, Latin), for example; In the Mathematical Linguistics Olympiad as well as the Astronomy and the Astrophysics Olympiad taking place in India and the Mathematical Olympiad in Hong Kong. There is also a growing number of technical schools’ students who were laureates of olympiads and competitions. We have 22 laureates in 8 technical schools, taking part mainly in vocational olympiads.
“I would like to congratulate you on your achievements, but most of all on who you have become. I believe that you will accomplish great things in the future. Congratulations to Wiktoria Kośny, the Laureate of the 67th Mathematical Olympiad, who won a silver medal at the European Girls’ Mathematical Olympiad 2016 in Romania, and congratulations to Stanisław Scześniak, laureate of the 23rd Informatics Olympiad, who won a silver medal in the Baltic Olympiad in Informatics 2016 in Finland.
