The NES School Olympiad aims to promote economic education in high school students. The olympiad takes place in each spring. We invite students grades 8-11 to participate regardless of whether economics is taught at their school. Most of the problems do not require special knowledge in economics to successfully complete them as solutions must demonstrate the ability to logically reason. As of 2011, the contest has been taking place in an online format on the platform ILoveEconomics.ru.
The jury consists of NES students and graduates of different graduating classes. Traditionally, winners will receive certificates and popular scientific literature in economics. Winners of the competition are given no formal advantages for admission to higher education institutions. However, in the process of solving the proposed tasks, the student will be certainly be introduced to new economic ideas that will be useful while applying to university.
