What is a Contest? - Part 1

No, no I'm not talking about the British body formed to counter terrorism which is code-named CONTEST. I'm talking about real contests, and if you ask what a contests is then I'll let the dictionary do the work:
A contest, is an event in which two or more individuals or teams engage in competition against each other, often for a prize or similar incentive.

So that was for the definition, now if we talk more about contests then lets see them more around us. We find contests especially in schools, universities and other contests carried out by organizations for a good purpose. So it is pretty obvious that the main aim of a contest is to provide a base for competition among individuals, who in turn are competing for the whole held aim of winning the prize. I will talk more about contests soon.
