Inglemoor High School sophomores Ishika Kaushik, Sofia Leotta, Andhisty Mahmud, Aditi Saraf and Angela Tang recently won the Northwest regional Euro Challenge competition.

The team advanced them to the semi-final round, which was held May 2 in New York. This is the third consecutive year Inglemoor students have been victorious in the region.

According to a press release, students prepared a detailed presentation of current economic conditions in Finland and made policy recommendations to improve the country’s competitiveness, human capital and sustainable growth. Specifically, the students studied demographic shifts, immigration and the difficulties Finland faces with a large social welfare state and declining population.

“The Euro Challenge is a unique learning opportunity for young Americans that teaches students about financial literacy and policy making from an EU perspective,” said Moreno Bertoldi, special adviser to the ambassador and head of the economic and financial affairs section at the EU Delegation, in the release. “It also highlights that the EU is the largest economic partner of the United States. Since we launched the Euro Challenge in 2006, I am proud to say that hundreds of American students have participated in this exciting competition.”

More than 80 teams participated in this year’s competition, representing high schools from 15 states. Twenty-five teams were selected to advance to the semi-finals, and from there five will be selected for the final round.
