Nationwide distant Competition in Economics

In July 2010 the New Economic School and the non-profit partnership "NES Alumni and Friends" announced the results of the nationwide distant Competition in Economics. High School students and teachers were invited to participate. Students were offered creative problems, and teachers submitted course and lesson plans. The goal of the Competition was to promote studying modern economic theory at Russian High Schools, and to find the most talented students. In addition, the organizers view this Competition as a first step towards creating a community of school teachers who teach Economics and related subjects.

362 students from 49 regions of Russia submitted their work for this Competition. First Prises were awarded to Timur Abbyasov (11th grade, Moscow), Ilya Svistunov (10th grade, Ryasan), Tatiana Paramonova (10th grade, Kirov), Evgeniya Ternova (9th grade, Orel), Maxim Makarov (8th grade, Novouralsk), and Almaz Kamalov (8th grade, Vysokaya Gora). The Competition's web page contains the results of all the participants, the winner announcement, as well as problem solutions with graders' comments. We congratulate all the winners and wish that all the participants develop keen interest in Economics.

The results of the teacher's Competition will be announced later.
