Economics Challenge Contest Online for MO Students

The Missouri State EconChallenge ONLINE! is a way for students to flex their intellectual muscle and test their economic content knowledge. Sponsored by the Council for Economic Education, the Challenge encourages students to apply their economics knowledge by competing with other students from across the state.

Once you have registered as a teacher, you can begin to create student teams of 3 to 5 students in either of two divisions.  After creating your teams, you will be given unique access codes for each student. Distribute these access codes to your students when they are ready to take the Challenge. Once competition begins, students can enter the EconChallenge ONLINE! website and complete a 30 question rapid fire exam consisting of macro, micro, and international questions. Each student will be given 35 minutes but all team members must complete the exam within 3 hours. The winners of the EconChallenge ONLINE! will receive notification once the competition has ended.
