The High School Fed Challenge is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.
New for the 2015 competition, teams can compete in one of two divisions–Maiden Lane or Liberty Street–depending on the level of economics-related courses taken by students. Leading up to the competition, New York Fed staff will be hosting orientations and an all-day boot camp for students as well as providing online resources to aid students as they prepare for the competition.
Schools in the Federal Reserve’s Second District are eligible to compete.
