SUMS Problem Competition

The SUMS Problem Competition was a correspondence-based mathematical problem-solving competition for Australian undergraduate students, run by various organizers at the University of Sydney each year from 1964 to 2015. It was decided after 2015 to wind up the competition, to allow the growth of other competitions of a different kind. In particular, see the Simon Marais Mathematics Competition.
