Center for Economic Education
The Center for Economic Education was designed to promote a better understanding of economics and personal finance for K-12 teachers and students in the greater Duluth area.
Regional Economic Challenge
Each year, the Center will host a Regional Economic Challenge, which is part of the Minnesota Economic Challenge. In the Minnesota Economics Challenge, teams of students representing high schools across the state compete in a series of challenging tests of their economic understanding and reasoning abilities.
Participants compete in both individual and team categories. The state competition is held at the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis each spring with an opportunity for winning teams to earn a trip to nationals in New York City in May.

Resources for instructors
The Council for Economic Education has a collection of resources for K-12 educators and students. EconEdLink is a great site for free personal finance and economic lesson plans and other interactive tools. The site offers webinars and the capabilities to search for tools based on grade level.
