Depending on how many students will enroll in taking the exam we will chose a larger or a smaller room. Please register at https://forms.gle/D8d8ju72HYUG1oNZ6.  The registration is not mandatory, meaning you can still participate even if you did not register, but it will help the organizers when requesting the exam room.

* ''Where?'' TBA
 
* ''What?'' There will be seven problems from various areas of mathematics (such as algebra, number theory, calculus, combinatorics, and others). We would like it to be challenging, but probably easier than, say, the Virginia Tech competition, and much easier than the Putnam Exam. You can take a look at our [[Putnam Club|Putnam Club page]] to see what type of problems we have in mind.
 
 
 
If you are interested in participating then please fill out the following short [https://goo.gl/forms/UxlQf8vHZI3jaXtk2 registration form]; you will need to log in with you Wisc ID. (The registration is not actually required, but it would help us plan the event.)
