Launched in 2006, Euro Challenge is an exciting educational opportunity for 9th and 10th grade high school students to learn about the European Union (EU) and the euro. Teams of three to five students are asked to make presentations answering specific questions about the European economy and the single currency, the euro. They are also asked to pick one member country of the “euro area” (the 19 EU member countries that have adopted the euro so far), to examine an economic problem at the country level, and to identify policies for responding to that problem. The club travels to Manhattan to present the presentation at prestige financial institution. The panel of judges consists of prominent members of the EU. This club opens up a worldly experience to students and helps diversify their college applications.
