Who Wants to be a Mathematician? A mathematical game show for high school students

From their website:
Who Wants to Be a Mathematician is a game in which high school students compete for cash and prizes by answering multiple choice mathematics questions.
There are two versions - a national competition, held annually at the Joint Math Meetings, and regional competitions, which are held in six or so locations around the country every year, and are often part of larger outreach events. For both versions, qualification comes by taking one or two rounds of school administered tests. Not a lot of schools know about it - so if you want to participate, you're most likely going to have to ask.  It is possible for younger students to qualify, but the questions pull from all of pre-calculus math.
