Ashwin Sah and Andrew Bai hold their winnings at math contest.

Ashwin Sah, a ninth grader at Jesuit High School, won $3,000 playing Who Wants to Be a Mathematician at the Oregon Invitational Math Tournament at Oregon State University May 17. More than 150 of Oregon's best math students attended the contest and tournament. Ashwin also won a graphing calculator donated by Texas Instruments.

Ashwin has done well in math competitions already, finishing second nationally the past two years in MathCounts, a competition for middle school students. Recently Ashwin was an Honorable Mention at the 2014 USA Math Olympiad and has been invited by the Mathematical Association of America to attend the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program this summer.

Andrew Bai, also a student at Jesuit, competed in Who Wants to Be a Mathematician, winning $500 and a calculator. Ashwin and Andrew were two of the eight contestants selected based on their scores on the tests the students took earlier in the day.

The American Mathematical Society organizes the games.
