# 4th PNVMO set on October 7, 2023.

MATH-Inic Philippines formally announced the holding of the 4^{th} Philippine National Vedic Mathematics Olympiad (4^{th} PNVMO) on October 7, 2023, by sending invitations to all regional and division offices of the Department of Education last week.

As with other national and International VM competitions participated in by Filipino students and teachers, the 4^{th} PNVMO will be administered through area facilitators (AFs). Those interested to be AFs may register not later than Sept 25, 2023 using this link: https://bit.ly/4thPNVMOAF.

Once registered, the AF will be given access to recordings of previous review sessions for VM competitions. They can then accept the registration fees of participants in their areas until the deadline which is set on October 1, 2023.

A copy of the invitation to area facilitators is posted here: https://www.math-inic.com/blog/invitation-to-area-facilitators/.

For the 4^{th} PNVMO, the age brackets will be based on November 25, 2023, the date of the IVMO 2023, which is the biggest VM event every year.

MATH-Inic Philippines and the Institute for the Advancement of Vedic Mathematics (IAVM) organized the 1^{st} PNVMO as a face–to-face team competition at the Malayan High School of Science on August 25, 2019 with over 180 students from more than 50 schools nationwide participating.

It is widely believed that enthusiasm shown by the participants inspired James Glover, chair of IAVM to have an International Vedic Mathematics Olympiad(IVMO) which will be on its third year now.
