The finalists from the Council for Economic Education's National Economics Challenge on Monday will put their economics and problem-solving skills to the test in the nation's only high school economics competition.

The competition recognizes exceptional high school students for their knowledge of economic principles and their ability to apply critical-thinking skills to real-world events.
