The Konhauser Problemfest is an annual problem-solving competition for three-person teams from Augsburg, Carleton, Gustavus Adolphus, Macalester, the University of St. Catherine, St. Olaf, and the University of St. Thomas.  The Problemfest was started in 1993 in honor of the late Joe Konhauser, a long-time professor at Macalester who was a very active problemist.  The winning college or university gets the traveling trophy, a granite sculpture of the pizza theorem and its proof.  Each year 20 to 25 teams compete in the Konhauser.
