This challenge is a quiz style bowl game that offers an opportunity for students to test their economics knowledge.  Teams compete statewide and nationally.  If a team is one of the top 8 in the country, they are invited to New York to compete at the national Council of Economic Education finals.  Our top teams did not make it to New York, but placed very high this year.  The students on each winning team received a $50.00 gift card.
