In 2018, Mondi Stambolijski (Bulgaria) hosted an arithmetic competition, ‘Math with Mondi’, to promote maths education in elementary schools and inspire children to have fun with mathematics. Fifteen employees of Mondi Stambolijski volunteered to support the event, which was developed in partnership with the municipality of Stambolijski and the Union of Mathematicians in Plovdiv.
The competition was open to students from first to fourth grade from all the schools in the municipality of Stambolijski. Around 180 students took up the challenge to test their mathematical and problem-solving skills. The 43 highest scoring students received medals and certificates of merit, presented by senior members of Mondi’s management team and volunteers during an official award ceremony at Mondi Stambolijski.
