I believe there is a contest every week called Hubmob. You find the topic for that week at the top of the forums page. There hasn't been a new topic posted for this week yet - maybe the staff has today off b/c it's presidents day.
Also, the staff did say they were working on another month long contest, but they have not disclosed the topic or the exact time. We will just have to wait.
