Annual Math Contest for high-school students in the state of Tennessee. Students are competing for 10 4-year $4,000 scholarships to be used at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
The FERMAT I Exam is given at 8:30am. The top 50 on this exam advance to take the FERMAT II exam. The top 10 finishers on the FERMAT II exam win the scholarships.
While the exams are being graded, the Math Bowl takes place.

There are two divisions with the top two in each division winning a team trophy and individual medallions.
