Abstract: The Informatics Olympiad plays key role in introducing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to Mongolian secondary schools. It is one of the biggest ICT related competition among Mongolian secondary school teachers and students. The goals of the Informatics Olympiad are to stimulate interest in informatics and information technology, and to bring together exceptionally talented teachers and students from all over Mongolia. Mongolian Informatics Association organizes annual national informatics Olympiads in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (MOECS) and other universities for the 21st year. For past years, a number of activities were implemented to enhance the informatics Olympiads, such as training of informatics subject teachers, development of training manuals and handbooks with tasks and problems for the informatics Olympiads, various activities to support participation of Mongolian teams in the International Olympiad in Informatics. In this paper, we describe national Informatics Olympiads in Mongolia, informatics education, Mongolian participation in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), and related key issues and problems.
