The ceremony brought a special moment this year, an acknowledgment of the figures that had a positive impact on the tournament throughout its history. 16 personalities were honored, including Mr. Mário Girasole, president of TIM Institute who was represented by the director of TIM Institute, Marcio Couto Lino.
The TIM Institute has been a partner of OBMEP since 2015. The most prominent supported initiatives are scholarships aimed at medalists about to enter Higher Education, in addition to support for the Mathematics Portal (portaldaobmep.impa.br). For this edition of the ceremony, 40 smartphone-type devices (5G) were donated by the TIM Institute and raffled among the winning students.
