CEE’s National Economics Challenge is Going Global!

The Council for Economic Education (CEE) is excited to announce the expansion of our National Economics Challenge (NEC) internationally as part of the World Youth Forum-Future Economics Leadership Summit (WYF-FELS).

The CEE National Economics Challenge will be featured as part of the five-day WYF-FELS summit, being held in Hong Kong August 6-10. WYF-FELS cultivates and celebrates economic education, cultural diversity and individual development among youth globally. The summit and student competition are designed to lead to an improved, globalized education landscape where we can enlighten, enrich and empower future generations.

According to Nan J. Morrison, President and CEO of the Council for Economic Education, “Economics provides a powerful lens to understand how the world works and how to navigate within it. Participating in the WYF-FELS and the NEC not only builds economic knowledge, but enables students to gain skill in teamwork, presentation, and critical thinking, and to establish a network of like-minded global peers.”

You may be able to become a part of this inaugural summit, with over 300 students from across the globe!

About the Council for Economic Education

The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K–12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities, and learn to successfully navigate in our ever-changing economy. We carry out our mission in three ways.  We advocate to require financial and economic education in every state. We provide training, tools and resources – online and live through over 180 affiliates nationwide – to more than 40,000 teachers annually who in turn bring the highest quality economics and personal finance instruction to over 4 million students. We deepen knowledge and introduce high school students to critical career capabilities through our national competitions and Invest in Girls program.
