Problems from or inspired by mathematics competitions. Questions regarding mathematics competitions.

This tag is intended for:

  1. actual problems from mathematics competitions;
  2. inquiries about alternative proofs for a particular problem that is from a math contest;
  3. questions that have been explicitly inspired by a contest problem, including practice problems; and
  4. soft questions requesting advice on competing in contests or those inquiring into the general utility of such things in terms of encouraging the further pursuit of mathematics.

See here for a list of mathematics competitions from which you might ask questions.

Please note that Mathematics StackExchange has a policy on questions from current competitions. Questions from ongoing competitions will be locked and temporarily deleted until the end of the contest. Therefore it is usually a good idea to include information about a contest, such as a link to the contest webpage. This is particularly true if the contest is a recent one.
