Welcome to the North Carolina Economics Challenge!


The North Carolina Economics Challenge is the state’s most prestigious high school economics competition. Each year, over 10,000 students across the United States participate in the contest. The Challenge recognizes high school and middle school students for their knowledge of economic principles and their ability to apply problem-solving and critical-thinking skills to real-world events.

The top eight high school teams will advance to the State Economics Challenge State Championship, where teams will present a case study scenario and cultimate with an exciting buzzer round to crown the winners! The winning team will advance to the regional competition for a chance to advance to the Nationals!
