2017 Economics Challenge
Please see this attachment regarding this year's Economics Challenge. We have had a lot of success in the past, so we encourage you to register as a teacher and register as many teams as you can. Please take a look at the dates, it has happened that teams were not expecting to classify and then they did, having not blocked the state finals dates in their calendars. As in previous years, the team that qualifies with the highest score will be declared U.P. Champion and our center will support their transportation and accommodations expenses. If other teams qualify and need some financial support, we can try to work something out.
On the Saturday after the qualifiers have been announced, we intend to have a practice quiz bowl to help you be ready. We can use video teleconference to make it easier on teams not close to NMU. Please don't hesitate to contact the center with any questions you may have. The more U.P. teams participate, the better the chances to get more teams in the state finals. See the 2017 Michigan Teacher Resource Guide.
Also, the Personal Finance Challenge is coming very soon after.
