The College Fed Challenge is a competition designed to bring real-world economics into the classroom. Teams play the role of monetary policymakers by analyzing economic conditions and recommending a course for monetary policy.
New for the 2015 competition, teams can compete in one of two divisions–Maiden Lane or Liberty Street–depending on the level of economics-related courses taken by students. Leading up to the competition, New York Fed staff will be hosting orientations and a half-day boot camp for students. We also encourage all teams to visit the Fed Challenge resources hub, a shared resource for teams competing in the high school and college levels, for materials on the subject matter.
Schools in the Federal Reserve's Second District are eligibile to compete.
