The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition
The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition is given once each year (usually the first Saturday in December). It is given at universities across the U.S. and Canada to undergraduates - a student may take this exam at most 4 times. There are many web pages devoted to information about the exam (a search on Yahoo turned up over 400 such pages.) Copies of recent exams in various formats (and solutions) can be found at http://www.unl.edu/amc/ a-activities/a7-problems/putnam/. (See also http://www.math.niu.edu/~rusin/problems-math/.)
