About the Economics Challenge

A program true to our economics mission, the Kansas National Economics Challenge is comprised of online quizzes and in-person competitions. Beginners to experts in economics, all students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to participate in this FREE program to showcase what they are learning in class.

Beginners will compete in the David Ricardo division, and more advanced students will compete in the Adam Smith division. Division rules can be found at the registration page and should be reviewed to ensure your teams are in the correct division.  First, students in both the beginning and advanced divisions will compete in an online preliminary test round. Top online teams from both divisions will advance to the State Competition. Adam Smith winners will have an opportunity to participate in a national semi-final round and could have the chance to travel free to National. No previous economics experience is necessary to join the game!
