The Euro Challenge is an exciting educational opportunity for high school students to learn about the European Union (EU) and the euro. Each team of three to five students is asked to make a presentation answering specific questions about the European economy and the single currency, the euro. Teams choose one member country of the “euro area” (the 18 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.
Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, the Euro Challenge has continued to expand nationally, with more than 100 teams from various regions in the United States competing for monetary awards generously provided by The Moody’s Foundation
The Euro Challenge is a program launched by the Delegation of the European Union to the United States
