    You may be able to cherry pick some problems from some old ACM contest questions.

    What kind of contest did you have in mind?

    CountZero

    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James

      Contest must be of competition or having some practising problems.
        Well, then the best contest is right in front of you: try to answers the questions asked here. If you do well you will get XP (eXperience Points) given to you by the other Monks.

    Well, there's Obfuscated Code right on this site, actually. Not sure what kind of contest you meant, but there's one without even having to use a search engine.
