International Economic Summit hosted by Alhambra High School

Location

Alhambra , CA United States

Press Release—April, 2018

Academic school event on international economics and trade at the International Economic Summit on Wednesday April 25, hosted by Alhambra High School.

On April 25 2018, the International Economic Summit will be held in the gymnasium of Alhambra High School. This event, originally developed in conjunction with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, is the culmination of a semester-long Economic class project that teaches basic economic concepts through the theme of international trade. Student groups will be acting as economic advisors for a particular country as they try to build alliances, trade their goods and services, pass trade issues, fund international development projects and compete to be the most economically successful country in the world. Over 300 students and 80 nations will be participating in this year’s activity and it promises to be one of the more exciting and challenging programs in recent memory. Starting at 8:00am with introductions and instructions, the formal program will begin at 8:30 with an international flag quiz followed by alliance negotiations, trade issue voting and discussions, catastrophe/benefit scenarios, and general trade session. A brief awards ceremony will be held at 11:30 to acknowledge Best Costume, Best Table Display and Best Video winners.

Free street parking available.

Location: Alhambra High School, 101 S. 2nd Street, Alhambra 91801.
