Mathematical competitions in Bosnia and Herzegovina have been held since 1956, when it was a part of former Yugoslavia. For a few years after gaining independence (1992), mathematical competitions were being held separately in the two entities, until the National Mathematical Olympiad was established in 1996. The competitions in the entities now serve as qualificational rounds. The national MO is organized in the IMO format.
