How well do you know economics? Challenge yourself!

High school students throughout the state challenged their knowledge in economics on Saturday, March 22 at Georgia Public Broadcasting in the Georgia Championships of the National Economics Challenge. The competition highlights the strong economic education program in Georgia and winners move on to compete in the regional competition and winners of the regional competition move on to the national finals in New York City.

The competition has four rounds – three rounds of rigorous written questions and a final Quiz Bowl round – and is divided into two divisions – the Adam Smith Division is students currently taking an Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, honors, college level, or two-semester class, and the David Ricardo Division for students enrolled in all other general economics or one-semester economics classes.

Winners of this year’s Georgia Championships include Starr’s Mill High School in the David Ricardo Division and Davidson Fine Arts Magnet in the Adam Smith Division. Congratulations!
