Each year, HUEA organizes the Harvard Pre-Collegiate Economics Challenge (HPEC), a competition for high school students passionate about economics and its role in the world around us. HPEC challenges students through a series of individual and team rounds on economics knowledge at the Advanced Placement Microeconomics and Macroeconomics levels as well as economic news, history, recent research, and applications in a wide variety of fields such as education and the environment. In the past, students have found this competition to be fun and helpful preparation for the AP Economics exams. In addition to the Challenge itself, competitors and coaches will have the opportunity to build friendships with their peers, hear presentations from and interact with professors, graduate students, and real-world economists, and learn about the wider world of economics beyond the high school classroom. Feel free to email us below. We look forward to seeing you in April!
