The Montana Economics Challenge Registration is Open!  

The even will be held online only.  Testing will need to be completed by April 15, 2021. 

As an added incentive this year, we will offer $500 team prize of $500 for the winners of both divisions in the Montana Economics Challenge.  

As always, all top performing teams will have a chance to compete at regional and potentially national competitions, which will also be held virtually.  

We are already arranging partners for 2022 when we hope to all gather again for in-person competitions.  On the bright side for this year, we hope we can attract new interest without the geographic barriers of travel to Helena in March. 

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 event is sponsored by the Montana Bankers Association, First Interstate Bank, BNSF Railways and the Montana Financial Education Coalition.  

Please contact MCEE at mcee@montana.edu if interested in sponsoring the event or volunteering.

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.
