Southeast Region Champions (Yeahhhh!)

Today at the 2009 Southeast Region Economics Challenge Championship, Starr's Mill High School from Fayette County took home 1st place in the David Ricardo division. Coached by Mark DeCourcy and Michael Melvin, the SMHS Panthers led from start to finish, at one point opening up a 455 point lead on the 2nd place team.

Humongous congratulations go out to everyone from the Starr's Mill squad.

As winners of today's event, the Panthers each took home a $1,000 US savings bond and will now have the opportunity to travel to NYC to compete against three other schools in the national finals. Good luck Starr's Mill!

In other Econ Challenge news, the North Carolina School of Math and Science took home 1st in the Adam Smith division.
