Register now to participate in the 2013 Euro Challenge Competition! We have updated all the resources for participating teams, including country profiles and sheets on the ten economic challenges and the current economic situation in the euro area. This year, we are also introducing a new challenge: Banking sector weaknesses. As a pressing issue in some euro area countries, it is an exciting new challenge for your students to consider selecting!
This year, we are delighted to continue our expansion of the Euro Challenge across the country. You can look forward to an exciting competition this year, so start preparing — the final rounds of the competition will take place on April 12, 2013 at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. We look forward to seeing you all at the competition events and interacting with you on the Forum, our Facebook page and via Twitter.
Teachers, sign up sooner rather than later to participate in this year’s Euro Challenge. The deadline to register is coming up, as are a number of orientation events. We are introducing new training features for you this year, including three faculty webinars and additional online resources to prepare your students for the Euro Challenge. Look out for announcements about the webinars, as well as plans and dates for orientations in your regions.
Students, start looking forward to the competition events and preparations! There is so much information about the euro area in the news, keep checking our Delicious and Facebook pages and Twitter feed for interesting links we share! We ask returning students and alumni to act as ambassadors for the program and spread the word about the competition to friends in your school and other schools. Good luck and enjoy!
