Euro Challenge

The Euro Challenge is a national competition for cash prizes where 9th and 10th grade high school students test their knowledge and understanding of the European economy and the Euro, the currency shared by many of the 27 countries of the European Union.  The European Studies Center is proud to host the Western Pennsylvania regional competition for Euro Challenge.  Participation can be in person or remote.  The top team(s) from the regional competition will advance to the national competition.
