Dear Educator,

We are happy that you’re interested in participating in CEE’s National Economics Challenge (NEC), which is now entering its 18th year. As a nonprofit organization, we depend on support to be able to continue to provide programs and events such as the NEC. This year we are asking that each team registered for the NEC consider paying a voluntary registration fee of $40–or any other meaningful amount–to help us support the Challenge. Your support will allow us to continue to provide a meaningful experience for all students. If your team is able to pay a voluntary registration fee, please click here to do so.
 
Thank you so much for your consideration,
 
The NEC Team
