A good starting book, at a more elementary level, is available from
and is titled _Creative Problem Solving in School Mathematics_.

The Olympiad book sold there is probably too easy for most high school 
students (it's aimed at grades 4-6, mostly).

The Mandelbrot competition ( http://www.mandelbrot.org/ ) is another
good source of problems at an easier level than the USA Math Olympiad.

You might also enjoy the book _Mathematical Circles_ (Russian Experience), 
by Fomin, Genkin, and Itenberg, American Mathematical Society, 1993. 

If you don't think these suggestions are what you're looking for, please
let me know why and I'll hunt through my library for some better ones!
