Summary: The article describes the possibilities of the development of inquiry skills of secondary school students during preparing and participating in the mathematical competition BDay. During the competition, teams of three or four secondary school students work on openended tasks that require students' investigation and an original approach to the problem. The competition is not only about finding the winner, but it is suitable for identifying the level of students' inquiry skills.
