Welcome to Indiana's Economics Challenge!

 

We hope you will join the Indiana Council for Economic Education for the 2019 Indiana Economics Challenge! 

Economic literacy is as important today as it has been at any time in our past.  We believe the best way to "build our youth for the future" and increase economic literacy is by setting students on a path to becoming better decision-makers, informed voters, knowledgeable consumers, and productive citizens.  The Indiana Economics Challenge helps accomplish this in a fun and engaging way!

The Indiana Economics Challenge is an opportunity for teams of 4 high school students to demonstrate their knowledge on a broad array of economic 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 in one of two divisions - David Ricardo or Adam Smith.  Teams travel to one of three Indiana sites for the face-to-face state competition, where they vie for a spot in the National Semifinals!

Indiana's face-to-face Economics Challenge competition will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2019.
