The Article analyzes current state, problems, challenges, and opportunities of the Olympiad in Informatics activities in Kyrgyzstan. From the practical point of view, authors suggest mechanisms and instruments with a purpose of improving several main criteria of successful performance by Kyrgyz students at international informatics contests, including the most prestigious and respected one - International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI). One of the significant practical tools described and analyzed in the paper is the Contest Management System (CMS). CMS is an automated platform that allows not only to check and verify the solutions proposed by the contestants, but also optimize work and organizational processes of the olympiads at local and national levels. The authors suggest that further development of CMS will allow not only to increase the quality and efficiency of evaluating proposed solutions at the contests, but also improve overall performance of the Kyrgyz students at local and international olympiads in informatics.
