High School Teachers:
Mark your calendars now and save the date for the 2018 Indiana Economics Challenge Competition! On April 11, 2018 teams of 4 high school students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge on a broad array of economics topics in an atmosphere where economics knowledge is tested and recognized and where competing is FUN. Any Indiana student enrolled in a public, private, or home based school during the 2017-18 academic year is eligible to compete. Students may also compete as part of an organization, club or before/after school program. Teams compete in one of two divisions - Adam Smith or David Ricardo. Indiana state champions from both divisions compete against teams from other states in the National Semifinal competition for a trip to the National Economics Challenge in New York City in May!
