Calling all Y1 and Y2 IB Economics students

Published by at 9:27 pm under IB Economics

Economics – Young Economist of the Year 2008

Want to have a chance at winning 1,000 GBP ($2000)? All you have to do is write an essay that answers the following question:

“Which economic idea or policy has the most power to improve our lives?”

The Royal Economics Society in the UK will select its recipient of the “Young Economist of the Year” Award based on the submission of a 1,000-2,000 word essay. This contest is open to all IB Econ students worldwide.

The Royal Economic Society and tutor2u are delighted to announce a competition to find the Young Economist of the Year 2008. This essay competition is open to all students studying for A Levels offered by UK Exam Boards (in any subject) or the International Baccalaureate. Entries from the UK and Overseas are encouraged. The RES is particularly keen to encourage students to enter the competition who are in the first year of their studies. In 2007 over 750 entries were submitted, with Zoe Hart from Colchester RGS taking the first prize.
