Economics Challenge

Stay Tuned - 2020 Dates will be unveiled in October!


In the Economics Challenge, teams of students compete in a series of challenging tests of their economic understanding and reasoning abilities. Teams compete at the regional (in-person or online) and state level in the spring with a chance to attend the national competition in New York City. Visit the National Economics Challenge homepage for more information on the national competition.

Photos from the 2019 challenge are on our Facebook page!

Those who are interested in the competing can register from now until February 22, 2019, with each regional challenge being held in March. Afterwards you will need to complete and turn in a consent form for each student, which can be found here. For those who are unable to attend a regional competition, an online challenge can be found on the registration page as well.
