The 2018 EconFest was held on October 25 at the Bell Museum in St. Paul.
This annual event is an opportunity to hear directly from teachers and students about the importance of economic & personal finance education and a chance to join MCEE in our commitment to equipping all Minnesotans with the understanding needed to succeed in a complex economy. Attendees will learn about MCEE's student competitions from this year's winning teams in Econ Challenge, Personal Finance Decathlon, and Global Food Challenge; meet with Master Teachers who not only provide their own students with innovative and creative economic and personal finance lessons, but also dedicate their time and passion to teaching teachers; explore MCEE's Community Mentorship for Financial Capability program which builds and strengthens financial education services in communities across the state; and, most of all, celebrate teaching excellence and have fun!
