Euro Challenge 2013

What is the Euro Challenge?

The Euro Challenge is a national competition open to teams of 9th and 10th grade students and is supported by the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.

The competition begins at the regional level. In Texas, the regional competition will take place on March 25, 2013 at the University of Texas at Austin.

Students compete in teams of 3-5 students. There may only be one team per school.

The best teams from each U.S. region travel to New York City to compete in the national finals in April 2013 at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Conditional on an annual grant, winning teams can win awards and a trip to Washington generously offered by The Moody's Foundation.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • High schools located in regions coordinated by partner institutions (i.e., participating Federal Reserve banks or European Union Centers of Excellence at several US universities - UT Austin is a EU Center of Excellence). Emphasis is put on the participation of public high schools.
  • The participation of one team, consisting of three to five 9th and 10th grade students in global studies, economics, world history/geography or European studies classes.
  • One faculty advisor for the school team. Advisors will be invited to attend a teacher orientation seminar, and are required to attend the Euro Challenge competition rounds with their student team.
