MFJMCE: Local Florida Euro Challenge Competition
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 15-minute 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 20 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.
Teams can choose one of the following economic-related challenges:
- What Role Does Fiscal Policy Play in Promoting Economic Growth?
- Managing Migration Flows
- Inequality, Social Mobility and the Gender Gap
- Innovating for Long-Term Growth and the Future of Work
- NEW Reducing Energy Dependence on Russia
In Florida, the Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at FIU coordinates the competition. This year, 9 high schools from different counties in Florida, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Alachua counties, competed on site and virtually on March 28, 2023
