Colorado's Competition is March 23-April
The Colorado Council for Economic Education
(CCEE) is hosting its third annual EconChallenge ONLINE in March of
2015. EconChallenge is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their
economic literacy by competing with other students across the state in an
Participating teachers register through the EconChallenge portal and create teams with up to 4 students per team.
Teachers choose one of two divisions in which each team will compete.
Once a team is created, the EconChallenge ONLINE!
portal creates unique access codes for each student team member.
In March, students enter the portal and
complete a test of economic knowledge that covers macro, micro and
international topics. Tests are custom-made for each division and each
student. Each student has thirty minutes to complete the exam; each team
has a window of two hours. (sample questions:

When the online component of the Challenge
is complete, the state administrator (CCEE) will access detailed
performance results for every team in the state and use the results to
identify state winners. In the case of ties, an additional test will be
given to the contending teams.
In order to make this great opportunity
available to as many students and teachers as possible, all portal and
registration fees will be paid by CCEE, meaning that participation will
come at no financial cost to teachers and their student teams.
We hope there is sufficient interest among
teachers of economics in the state of Colorado to join in the competition
and see how your students stack up. Registration on the site managed by
the Nebraska Council will be available on or about January 12, 2015.
