There are three divisions of the competition.

  • The Adam Smith Division for students enrolled in an IB, AP, honors, college-level or 2-semester micro/macroeconomics course.
  • The David Ricardo Division for students enrolled in a 1-semester general econ course – including courses taught to satisfy the Economics and Personal Finance requirement – or any course that teaches econ-related content (Government, Business, World Geography) as long as it is not labeled AP, IB, honors, or college level.

    **Participation in this division is a GREAT way to help prepare your students for the W!se certification exam!**
