This is the image for the news article titled Econ ChallengeStudents in Mr. Barjenbruch's Economics class took part in the "Econ Challenge" for a chance to win state-wide recognition and small cash prizes.  The Econ Challenge is put on by the Nebraska Council for Economic Education, and is a 30 question online multiple choice test about economic terms and theories that meet state Economics standards.  Students from across the state participate in teams of three or four, and their individual exam scores are averaged together for their final team score.  The Challenge is sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Banking & Finance and small cash prizes are awarded to the top three teams from the fall challenge, while the top teams from the spring challenge meet up in Lincoln for a final in-person competition.  Mr. Barjenbruch's third period class had a team that placed 3rd out of the 118 teams that competed in this fall's Econ Challenge.  Congratulations to Garrett Richters, Allison Hottovy, and Shiloh Richters for doing a great job of representing Centennial!
