Third Place for our Fed Challengers

Our first ever High School of American Studies Federal Reserve Challenge Team was able to win third place honors in the Fed Challenge on April 17 ! Competing in the NY Federal Reserve Bank on 33 Liberty Street, team members Chet Weissberg, Alex Fraser, Galib Kabir, and Kuang Wang analyzed the state of our economy and presented a prescription for our  monetary policy (just like real economists!).  This high place ranking is all the more notable, as these Juniors went into this contest  never having taken an Economics class.

Special Thanks to Mr. Murphy and parent Helena Feng for accompanying us as faculty advisors, and Mr. Weiss for setting up this event, and putting up with all our logistical difficulties.
