# Math Competitions

## Putnam Competition

**The William Lowell Putnam Competition** is an international competition sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America for undergraduate students interested in being challenged in mathematics.

This competition is for individual competitors and is a one-day event consisting of two three-hour sessions with a two-hour break between. In each session, participants are given six challenging problems to solve. Participants compete at their own universities; their solutions are sent to a committee of mathematicians for scoring.

More information about the Putnam Competition is available at https://www.maa.org/math-competitions/putnam-competition.
