Euro Challenge 2018
Launched in 2006, Euro Challenge is an exciting educational opportunity for 9th and 10th grade high school students to learn about the European Union (EU) and the euro. Teams of three to five students are asked to make presentations answering specific questions about the European economy and the single currency, the euro. They are also asked to pick one member country of the "euro area" (the 19 EU member countries that have adopted the euro so far), to examine an economic problem at the country level, and to identify policies for responding to that problem. This year, four OC students will participate in the Euro Challenge held at the University of Pittsburgh on Friday, March 16, 2018.

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). Those who win this local competition held at the University of Pittsburgh will advance to compete at the national tournament in New York City on April 26th.
