The finalists from the Council for Economic Education's National Economics Challenge on Monday will put their problem-solving skills to the test Monday in a high school economics competition hosted by CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin.
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. The Adam Smith Division is for Advanced Placement, international baccalaureate and honors students, as well as any returning competitors. The national champions from the United States and China will face off against each other in a final quiz bowl.
