Sachem High School North’s team has advanced to the Semifinal Round of the Euro Challenge and will be competing at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on April 26.
Five schools will advance from the Semifinal Round to the Final Round, which will take place during the afternoon of April 26.
Sachem is the only school from Suffolk County to advance, and one of only four schools from New York to make this round.
The Euro Challenge is an exciting educational opportunity for high school students to learn about the European Union (EU) and the euro. Student teams of three to five students are asked to make presentations answering specific questions about the European economy and the single currency, the euro. They are also asked to pick one member country of the “euro area” (the 19 EU member countries that have adopted the euro so far), to examine an economic problem at the country level, and to identify policies for responding to that problem.
