The High School Fed Challenge Championship is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing current economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy. The New York Fed invites high school teams in the Federal Reserve's Second District to enter this competition. Goals

  • increase understanding of macroeconomics and the Federal Reserve's role in setting U.S. monetary policy and ensuring financial stability,
  • promote interest in economics as a subject for study and the basis for a career, and
  • foster a greater understanding among students, teachers and the New York Fed.
