The Euro Challenge brings the EU to life better than any text book or web site. It gives bright young Americans a lifelong interest in economics and in the EU-US partnership – which today is more important than ever, as we work together for sustainable global recovery.José Manuel BarrosoFormer President of the European Commission
Phil DePauwPhil DePauw, Teacher, Saint Joseph High School (2016 Semifinalist)South Bend, INThe Euro Challenge enables students to synthesize and apply what they learned so that they can see the practical relevance of economics. It also gives them a chance to experience the ratification of material as a team.
I appreciate the motivation the Challenge gives to my students to go beyond the classroom in learning about economics and Europe as well as improving their speaking skills.Alice PurcellTeacherFirst Baptist Christian Academy (2012 Euro Challenge semi-finalist), Pasadena, TX
I learned so much about the European Union, which I wasn’t at all familiar with before the Challenge. Performing in front of knowledgeable economists was a great experience.Natalie Morrissey2012 Euro Challenge 5th place winning teamNorth Allegheny Intermediate High School, Pittsburgh, PA
I have to say it was a life changing experience for my daughter – to engage in such a high level of intellectual discourse, to be taken seriously and challenged by individuals who are part of the global economic elite – truly amazing.Reva Jaffe-WalterParent of Montclair High School Team Member 2011
The nature of the competition gets students to think deeply about economic, social & government issues.Richard DonnellyTeacherBedford High School (2012 Euro Challenge semi-finalist), Bedford, MA
Besides the financial, economic, and global education they received, the competition was confidence-building and an opportunity to strengthen their communication skills. It was refreshing for me and instructive for the team to see the different organizations working so well together towards a common goal. You guys pulled off a flawless event and I’m grateful for your dedicationThomas BradyTeacherThe Delbarton School (4th place in 2012 Euro Challenge), Morristown, NJ
I saw my students get excited and take initiative in learning about world and European economics, gain experience in talking to educated adults in unfamiliar surroundings, and develop confidence. Your program provided the impetus for these results.Peter SteinTeacherOceanside High School (2012 Euro Challenge semi-finalist), Oceanside, NY
The single most beneficial competition to offer kids a venue through which to learn and gain practical experience beyond our borders.Steven EschrichWinners of 2011 Euro ChallengeInternational Academy Central, Bloomfield Hills, MI
The entire competition was very worthwhile both for my students and me. The level of economics that they now understand outclasses most of the student population in the school. AND they had a blast!Jose MelgarejoTeacherNewark Collegiate Academy, one of 2013's first time participating schools
Vasiliki MavromatisVasiliki Mavromatis, Student, Stuyvesant High School (2015 Semifinalist)New York, NYI loved learning about economics and being able to apply the theories to the reality of Greece and the euro area. It was also fun to try a hand at policy making. I really enjoyed trying to find our own solutions for economic issues, and I also enjoyed becoming closer with my teammates.
Frances G. LasersonPresident of The Moody's Foundation
Thank you for your time, commitment and energy in developing a program that fosters independence and growth for the youth of this country.

Bravo!Barbara KondratowiczTeacherParamus High School (2012 participating school), Paramus, NJ
Theresa FischerTheresa Fischer, Teacher, Ridgefield High School (2016 2nd Place Winner)Ridgefield, CTThank you for creating such a wonderful program for sophomores. It was a pleasure to participate this year. The teams were exceptional and it was an honor for my students to be among them.
Radiance CampbellRadiance Campbell, Student, Normal Community High School (2014 Semifinalist)Normal, ILI was able to learn about a subject I knew nothing about. It was intellectually challenging which I so very much appreciate. The European Union, and subjects related to it, are not talked about in the school system. I love having this knowledge!
William HildenbrandWilliam Hildenbrand, North Allegheny Senior High School (2016 Semifinalist)Pittsburgh, PAThe Euro Challenge is an excellent opportunity to help my students understand the complexity of social, political, and economic integration and the difficulty reaching compromises.
Aaron EnsleyAaron Ensley, Teacher, Brookfield Academy (2014 Semifinalist)Brookfield, WIThis competition forced my students to study and learn more than I could ever get them to do in class. A very good learning experience.
Anna StaudAnna Staud, Student, Saint Joseph High School (2016 Semifinalist)South Bend, INI liked learning about something I knew nothing about and I’ve learned that economics might be something I want to pursue. I loved becoming close with my team and getting to travel to NYC! Joining Euro Challenge has been the best decision I’ve made so far.
Lisa BergmanLisa Bergman, Teacher, Princeton High School (2014 & 2015 1st Place Winner)Princeton, NJI like working with students as they learn so much about the economics of the euro area and apply concepts and principles they learned in class. It’s good to see them get excited about what they are learning and to see them develop the analytical skills required in this competition!
The Euro Challenge is a great learning experience for these students as they go beyond the headlines of economic news to fully understand key economic concepts and the complex realities faced by policymakers. By learning how Europe is dealing with these challenges, the Euro Challenge helps young Americans to have a better understanding of how Europe and America are deeply connected.João Vale de AlmeidaFormer EU Ambassador and Head of the European Union Delegation to the United StatesWashington, DC
Elizabeth GoldsteinElizabeth Goldstein, Judge, 2014 Semifinal RoundNew York, NYThank you so much for inviting me to participate in the Euro Challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the day. The students are so impressive. They are all well beyond their years in terms of their poise, communication skills and mastery of complicated abstract concepts.
Danielle FeldmanDanielle Feldman, Student, George W. Hewlett High School (2015 Semifinalist)Hewlett, NYI liked experiencing and learning from each presentation. I was able to expand my knowledge of the Euro area and economy. I truly loved the experiences and feel that I know more about the Euro area than most adults in the U.S.
I can follow economic news and read about what is happening in the euro area and actually understand what is going on! All in all, participating in the Euro Challenge was an amazing experience.Kathryn Grace Hulseman2010 Euro Challenge 2nd place winnerMount St. Mary Academy, Watchung, NJ
(I enjoyed) the experience of being immersed in the economic conditions of Europe and learning more about the European economy and culture.Greg Graham2012 Euro Challenge winning teamRidgefield High School, Ridgefield, CT
