High School Teachers:
The Indiana Economics Challenge is an opportunity for teams of four (4) high school students 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 high school student enrolled in a public, private or home-based school during the 2018-19 academic year is eligible to compete (no economics course is required). Students may also compete as part of an organization, club or before/afterschool program.
Teams compete simultaneously at three Indiana sites and participate in one of two divisions: Adam Smith or David Ricardo. The Econ Challenge will be held on April 11, 2019 in Indianapolis (Fishers), New Albany, and South Bend. The cost is only $20 per team (Early Bird rate) until February 5. After February 5th fees are $30 per team. The deadline for registering is March 8, 2019 so register now by clicking on More Information link below.

NEW THIS YEAR! Theme - "Economics in the Hoosier State!"
Understanding economics is helpful for making all sorts of decisions! Economic decisions affect the number and types of jobs available; provide goods and services that we want; and make Indiana a great place to live and work! This year, in addition to highlighting the most artistic entries for each concept, we will recognize all entries that also illustrate the theme, "Economics in the Hoosier State," with a "Young Hoosier Economist" certificate!
Prizes will be awarded to the top entries! Please have your entries postmarked to ICEE by May 30, 2019.
