Northwestern Economics Tournament (NET)
NET 2021 will be held entirely online in early April 2021.
Northwestern Economics Tournament (NET) is an annual event for high school students passionate about economics and its applications. It is organized by the Northwestern Economics Department and a team of undergraduates.
Registration for NET 2021 will open in January 2021.
Student competitors will be challenged on various economics principles at the AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics levels as well as on economic history, current events, and modern economic research through individual and team-based rounds. Northwestern economics professors and graduate students will also give presentations and lectures in order to help students gain a broader sense of what role economics plays in the world beyond the classroom. Students will also have the chance to interact with our distinguished faculty.
Above all else, NET is a learning experience for students, so we encourage everyone who is interested to participate regardless of their level of exposure to economics.
We would like to welcome all students interested in learning more about economics to participate! Please use the links below to learn more about the event. Note: Due to the virtual format of NET 2021, the tournament format and rules will vary from previous years.
