Discover Economics launches 2024 Young Economist of the Year Competition

Discover Economics has launched the Royal Economic Society “Young Economist of the Year” competition sponsored by KPMG and the Financial Times; an amazing opportunity for young people in years 10 – 13 (or equivalent) to consider real-world economic problems, and get the chance to be published in the Financial Times.

The Young Economics of the Year Competition is our annual student-based competition, to encourage students to think about current economic issues and promote the study of economic science.

Students can choose from a list of topics provided. Students do not need to be studying economics to be able to enter this competition. We welcome entries from any students who are interested in economic issues and would like to share original ideas or perspectives on these issues.
