Announcing the Inaugural Department of Economics High School Challenge

November 9, 2012 —

The Department of Economics is pleased to announce its inaugural High School essay challenge. Students will have the chance to address two questions, one microeconomic and the other macroeconomic. For this first pilot year, the competition is open only to students in Montgomery County public and private high schools. In the future, we plan to expand to more counties.

Prizes will be awarded to the top essays in each topic, and the winning writers will be invited to our annual awards banquet. The deadline for admission is March 15, 2013.
