Treasury/ETAWA Schools Economics Competition

Submissions are now open for the 2018 Treasury/ETAWA Schools Economics Competition.

The Treasury/ETAWA Schools Economics Competition will provide students in all secondary schools across the state an opportunity to develop their research, analytical and communication skills, fostering an interest and participation in economics.

In 2018, students are asked to prepare a 2,000 word essay on:

What do you consider to be the main problems or issues facing the Australian and Western Australian economies? What policy, or combination of policies, do you believe would be most successful in solving the problems or issues you have identified?

All essays will be judged on how well they address the competition question, critical analysis of the question, structure and writing style.

The top three finalists will be announced by the end of July 2018 and invited, accompanied by a teacher, to give a short presentation on their essays in August 2018.

All entries must be submitted by Friday, 29 June 2018.

Further details and a Candidate Information Pack are available here.
