Three FAHS Teams Participate in Economic Challenge

Posted on March 4, 2013 by


On 27 February 2013, history teacher Dina Heffner took three teams to the Economic Challenge Competition. This competition was held at Millersville University. This is Heffner’s second year taking a team to this competition.

At the economic challenge, teams will have to take a series of tests. They must take two individual tests and one test with their team. The first two tests that are taken are individual, and they are entitled Microeconomics and Macroeconomics.

The third test is a team test and that is called International Economics/Current Events.

Microeconomics is a branch of economics that studies the behavior of individual households and firms in making decisions on the allocation of limited resources. Typically, it applies to markets where goods and services are bought and sold.

Macroeconomics is a branch of economics dealing with the performance, structure, behavior and decision-making of an economy as a whole rather than individual markets.

This year, Fleetwood Area High School took three teams to Millersville for the Challenge.

One team is an all senior team; there is also one Advanced Placement (AP) team and one College Prep (CP) team as well. 

The top three teams to win at Millersville will move on to the State level to compete.  After that competition, the next top three teams to win will move to the National Level competition.
