International Economic Summit
The International Economic Summit is an economics- focused global education program that provides secondary teachers with a comprehensive instructional tool for infusing economic concepts into existing courses. There are two required components to the International Economic Summit. The first is the ten-unit curriculum that needs to be covered. The second is the mini summit (school or classroom-based trade simulation) to be held as the culminating event. A final voluntary component is the mega summit, a multi school trade simulation typically held at a local university.
National Economics Challenge

is an exciting contest for high school students to test their economics knowledge. Students work individually and in teams to answer questions related to micro-, macro-, and international economics and current events.
