Alice PurcellTeacher, First Baptist Christian AcademyThe Euro Challenge forces the students to take on a project, plan it, learn about economics, geography and politics, develop speaking skills, and bring the project to completion.
Bassam HalawehTeacher, Military and Global Leadership Academy at Marie G. Davis (2016 Semifinalist)I like the ideas and challenges that the students present. It helped connect my students to current issues and raised their awareness about EU countries and the difficulties they face today.
Anna StaudStudent, 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 BergmanTeacher, 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!
Elizabeth GoldsteinJudge, 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.
Aaron EnsleyTeacher, 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.
Vasiliki MavromatisStudent, 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.
Danielle FeldmanStudent, 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.
Radiance CampbellStudent, 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!
Phil DePauwTeacher, 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.
David O'SullivanAmbassador and Head of the European Union Delegation to the United StatesWashington, DCThe competition has reached thousands of young Americans. It’s 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. The Euro Challenge also helps them to have a better understanding of how deeply Europe and America are connected.
William HildenbrandNorth 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.
Theresa FischerTeacher, 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.
