Euro Challenge

The World Affairs Council of Charlotte was selected as the Euro Challenge coordinator for the state of North Carolina in partnership with Working in Support of Education (WISE) based in New York.

Launched by the Delegation of the European Union to the U.S. in partnership with The Moody’s Foundation and with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York serving as program advisor, the Euro Challenge tests high school students on their knowledge and understanding of the European economy and the euro, the currency shared by many of the 28 countries of the European Union. Teams create presentations that explore real world economic problems and allow students the opportunity to step into the shoes of international policy makers by crafting recommendations and solutions.
