Jimmy Vu, an EHS sophomore, placed first in his section of the Global Food Challenge Essay Contest hosted by the Minnesota Council on Economic Education. His essay won in the Food Safety category and addressed the topic of rBST in dairy products.

The Global Food Challenge is a unique competition for high school students, providing an opportunity to engage in research about food issues around the world and solve problems using their economic knowledge. Using this research and their understanding of economics, students will communicate their conclusions in a paper that is entered to win cash prizes.

Ansel Erol, a junior, achieved the top individual score at this year’s Minnesota Economics Challenge. The EHS Economics Team placed third overall in the state Challenge. In addition to Erol, team members were Adam Savageau, Robert Zhang, and William Walkley.
