About the Challenge
The Council for Economic Education (CEE) applies the excitement of an athletic competition to academic excellence and encourages students to apply their economics knowledge and work in teams. Competitions are held at the State, National Semi-Final, and National Final levels. In each competition, teams of students answer rigorous questions on microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, and current events. At the National Final, students complete rounds of testing, work in teams to solve case problems, and participate in a quick-paced oral quiz-bowl in order to compete for the title of National Champions.
State Economics Challenge winners advance to the National Semi-Finals, from which the top 4 scoring teams and their coach, in each division, win an all-expenses paid trip to New York City to compete in the National Finals. 2013 National Economics Challenge finalists are awarded cash prizes as follow:
First Place – $1000*
Second Place – $500*
Third Place – $250*
Fourth Place – $200*
*Prizes are awarded to 2013 National Economics Challenge finalists, students and coaches, in each division, David Ricardo and Adam Smith.
Students across the country participated in the state and Semi-Final rounds of the National Economics Challenge:
