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.

Teams can compete in one of two divisions–Maiden Lane or Liberty Street–depending on the level of economics-related courses taken by students. Leading up to the competition, New York Fed staff will be hosting orientations and a boot camp for students as well as providing online resources to aid students as they prepare for the competition.

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. To compete, teams of three to five students offer a 12-minute presentation on the economy and participate in a 13-minute Q&A with the judges. Judges are New York Fed economists and staff who are experts on economics and monetary policy.
