What is the High School Fed Challenge?
The High School Fed Challenge is an academic competition that provides students grades 9-12 the opportunity to study the U.S. economy through the lens of the U.S. Central Bank. Featuring teams of five or fewer students, each provided a 15-minute video presentation on the state of the U.S. economy and a policy prescription for the Fed. Teams selected as finalists advanced to a live 15-minute WebEx session to answer judges’ questions on their presentation, the economy, and the Fed.
