2018 Date Announced! Monday, March 5, 2018
The Helena Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and the Montana Council on Economic Education are pleased to partner for Annual Montana Economics Challenge.
Montana High School teachers are invited to incorporate economic learning in their classrooms and assemble teams to compete in a challenging array of tests covering concepts, issues and reasoning.
The most recent event was hosted March 6, 2017 in Helena Montana. The event was sponsored by the Montana Bankers Association, First Interstate Bank and BNSF Railways.
Teams are comprised of three or four students who compete individually and as a team. Essentially, each participant takes a 15-question, multiple choice test in each of the following three areas: microeconomics, macroeconomics and international trade and economics. The top two teams from each division after the first three rounds will compete against each other in a buzzer round on general economics and current events to determine overall division winners.
The Federal Reserve Bank and sponsors cover all costs associated with participation, keep an eye out for the next event in Spring of 2018.
