Over 10,000 participants compete for the opportunity to participate in the finals, which are held annually in New York City. The competition recognizes high school students for applying their knowledge of economic principles to real-world events.

The top eight teams in each division will square off against each other. The David Ricardo Division is for first-time competitors who have taken one economics course.
