The EconChallenge ONLINE! is a great way for high school students to flex their intellectual muscle and test their economic content knowledge. Sponsored by the Ohio Council for Economic Education, the Challenge encourages high school students to apply their economics knowledge by competing with other students from across the state. There are no registration fees! Two distinct competitive divisions are aligned with the level of classroom instruction.

David Ricardo: teams of students enrolled in one-semester (or less) general economics courses or courses which include introductory economic concepts (social studies, business, personal, finance, etc.).

Adam Smith: teams of students enrolled in Advanced Placement, international Baccalaureate, honors, two-semester, or any other advanced courses in economics (including courses taught by a secondary teacher where students earn college credit) or (note: returning students must participate in Adam Smith - even if they have not had additional courses in economics).

Competitions are held at the State, National Semi-Final, and National Final levels. In each competition, teams of students answer rigorous questions on microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, and current events. At the National Final, students complete rounds of testing, work in teams to solve case problems, and participate in a quick-paced oral quiz-bowl in order to compete for the title of National Champions!

Ohio is not participating in the Economics Challenge in 2016. Please check back for information about the 2017 contest.
