What Students Are Saying About Euro Challenge...
...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 .
As I enter the tenth year of coaching a Euro Challenge team, I am thrilled once again to be part of such an amazingly rich educational experience. Many thanks to the Delegation of the European Union for providing this unique opportunity to American high school students and their teachers!
Thank 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.
The Euro Challenge is a program of the Delegation of the European Union in Washington, D.C. and organized by Working In Support of Education (W!SE). The Delegation and W!SE are pleased to support this innovative academic competition to encourage American students to learn more about the European Union and its single currency, the Euro (€).
