There are no registration fees for the Governor's Challenge - EconChallenge ONLINE. Teachers may form multiple teams (of 3 to 4 students each). Students not currently enrolled in a qualifying course may participate, as long as they are coached by a school-sanctioned teacher and registered by the teacher.

Students compete in two divisions - David Ricardo and Adam Smith (advanced). Top scoring teams in each VDOE region will be recognized at the Adam Smith and David Ricardo level.  These teams will be invited to participate in the Championship competition to be held in Richmond on April 11, 2019. VDOE regional winners in the Online Challenge as well as the top scoring teams (not to exceed one team per teacher in that division) will be invited.
