...Euro Challenge was an opportunity unlike any I’ve experienced thus far in high school. For the first time, hours of research, writing, and presentation were guided by the interests of my peers and I instead of a constraining classroom assignment.
The competition taught me so much more than I could ever have learned in a text book...it taught me the value of hard work, collaboration, and how to think about a problem for which there is no prescribed answer. I have never been so satisfied in anything else I have done and I know I will carry these lessons with me throughout my life.
Euro Challenge shaped who I am today: my worldviews and my aspirations for future career paths. It showed me not only the value of deliberative and thoughtful policymaking...but also informed my understanding and appreciation of the European Union .
