* ''Where?'' '''VV B239'''
 
* ''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 the competition, please fill this short '''[https://goo.gl/forms/MhWb0n20YnFKKpVi2 registration form]'''! It is not actually required (so do not worry if something goes wrong), but it lets us see how many people are interested.
