SPECIFIC ELIGIBILITY DETAILS

 

Teams and Eligibility

The Economics Challenge has two divisions: David Ricardo and Adam Smith.

 

The David Ricardo division includes teams of students enrolled in one-semester (or less) general economics courses or courses which include introductory economic concepts (social studies, business, personal finance, etc.). The course must be taught by a secondary teacher.

The Adam Smith division includes teams of students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP Micro, AP Macro, or AP Micro and Macro), International Baccalaureate (pre-IB and IB), honors, two semester, or any other advanced courses in economics (including courses taught by a secondary teacher where students earn college credit). The course must be taught by a secondary teacher.

 

Teams consist of four (4) members at the Economics Champions Quiz Bowl and regional competitions.  (Online competition can consist of 3 or 4 members).  All members of a team must be from the same public, private, or home-based high school. A school which qualifies for state, regional and/or national competition may reconstitute the members of its team prior to the competition as long as all team members pre-qualified in the online competition.. Any team consisting of one or more students enrolled in a course listed under the Adam Smith category must play in the Adam Smith division. Schools may enter as many teams as they want.

 
Students must be enrolled for credit in a qualifying high school course that integrates economics (i.e., social studies, civics/government/economics, business economics) at some time during the 2007-2008 academic year. Students who have taken or are taking economics or economics related courses for college credit from a post-secondary instructor are not eligible to compete. Students who have taken more than one semester of economics or economics-related courses at any time must compete in the Adam Smith division. Students who are in their second semester of any economics or economics-related course must be in the Adam Smith division. Home-schooled students must compete in the Adam Smith division.
