CONGRATS to Students for First Place Finish in High School Fed Challenge
Students in the Morris County Academy for Finance and International Business recently won first place in the High School Fed Challenge, Maiden Lane Division. Congratulations to students Harsh Patel, Suneet Desai, Aditya Parikh, Gauri Kshirsagar, Erin Huber, and Stefanie Conti.
The High School Fed Challenge is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.
Fed Challenge participants develop skills – the ability to think analytically, to make effective presentations, to work as a team, to think on their feet – that are valuable in both their academic and professional careers.
Students offer a 12-minute presentation on the economy and participate in a 13-minute Q&A with the judges. Judges are economists and experts on economics and monetary policy. For more information, visit the High School Fed Challenge website.
