This year the Israeli Ministry of Education has decided to increase its support and involvement in the IOI project. The main goals of the increased involvement were to expose the project to a wider audience, and to expand the team selection and training process. For the first time, a regional competition was conducted before the national competition. In this paper we describe the aims, scope, and contents of the regional and national competitions, and provide some statistics about the students' backgrounds and views about these competitions.
